Montevideo Weapons Trial Delayed 08 Oct 13

The federal firearms trial for a 24-year-old Montevideo man has again been delayed. The trial of Buford “Bucky” Rogers had been set to get underway in August, but is now scheduled to begin December 2nd.  Rogers was arrested on May 3rd after FBI agents found a cache of explosives and weapons in his parent’s mobile home in Montevideo. Rogers and his family are reportedly members of the anti-government group “The Black Snake Militia.” In June Rogers was indicted on charges of illegal weapons possession and three counts of possessing “unregistered destructive devices.”  An unidentified man reportedly told authorities that Rogers wanted him to help attack a radio tower, the armory, and the police station in Montevideo. The man apparently refused, and went to the FBI with the information, who then raided Roger’s home.
