Terror Plot In Montevideo Foiled 07 May 13

Federal authorities are confident that they foiled a planned attack on the Montevideo Police Department and saved lives when they arrested a person many in the community are calling a “known white supremacist.” The FBI says that the potential terror attack that it believes was disrupted by a mobile home raid was in its “planning stages.” Buford Rogers was arrested Friday after a search of the 24-year-old’s Montevideo home turned up Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and firearms. An FBI official says that authorities believed there “would have been a localized terror attack, and that’s why law enforcement moved quickly.” The FBI says it believes authorities potentially saved the lives of several local residents. The investigation is ongoing. Rogers is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and made his initial appearance in federal court on Monday. He has a felony burglary conviction from 2011 that stems from an incident in Lac qui Parle County, amongst other criminal violations over the past few years.
