Russian Spy Confesses

Maybe this guy could have used some better training? One of the suspects in the Russian spying ring has confessed, according to federal prosecutors. Apparently, Juan Lazaro gave a statement after his arrest in which he said that “Juan Lazaro” was not his real name, that his Yonkers, New York, home had been purchased by Russian intelligence, and that “he would not violate his loyalty to the ‘Service’ even for his son,” as a court memo puts it. Other suspects were not as forthcoming: Donald Heathfield’s lawyer and his wife said the evidence against his client was “extremely thin.”
