BRECKSVILLE, Ohio -- Federal investigators released new video Friday, showing men trying to blow up a local bridge.

In the video, the men are seen trying to set explosives near the base of one of the pillars of a bridge along Route 82 in Brecksville.

The video was recorded during a sting operation conducted by federal agents.

Investigators said five men plotted to blow up the bridge on April 30, 2012. They were arrested when they attempted to detonate the devices. The devices were fake and were sold to the men by undercover agents.

Joshua Stafford was found guilty on all three charges against him on June 13 and will be sentenced later this summer. Douglas Wright, Brandon Baxter, Anthony Hayne and Connor Stevens all pleaded guilty to the charges and are serving prison time of between six and eleven-and-a-half years in federal prison.
