The original conversations between the informant and Solano were not recorded. Solano later sent the informant three videos of himself wearing a black ski mask as he discussed in Spanish his desire for violence in the name of ISIS. In one video, Solano referenced Harlem Suarez, a Key West man who was captured in an earlier FBI sting. As in the Suarez case, the FBI provided Solano with a fake bomb.
