MN Terror Suspect In Court Today 08 May 13

A detention hearing is scheduled to take place today (WED) for a man arrested in what the FBI is calling a thwarted terror plot in western Minnesota. 24-year-old Buford “Bucky” Rogers of Montevideo is scheduled to appear in US District Court in St. Paul this afternoon. He is charged with one count of illegally possessing a firearm, and was in custody pending a formal detention hearing. Rogers was arrested Friday after law enforcement searched a mobile home in Montevideo and found explosives and weapons. The FBI says it stopped a terror attack that was in its planning stages, and potentially saved the lives of several Montevideo residents. Rogers has a prior felony burglary conviction so is not allowed to have a gun. His father has said that his son is not a terrorist.
