(MONTEVIDEO, Minn.) -- Federal agents say they have thwarted a terror attack in Minnesota.
Buford "Bucky" Rogers, of Montevideo, Minn., started the Black Snake Militia, a group with anti-government tendencies, according to local officials. Federal agents arrested him Friday, prosecutors say, "to put him away before the weekend."
“The FBI believes that a terror attack was disrupted by law enforcement personnel and that the lives of several local residents were potentially saved,” the FBI said in a statement. “The terror plot was discovered and subsequently thwarted through the timely analysis of intelligence and through the cooperation and coordination between the aforementioned agencies.”
Inside a storage shed behind the trailer Rogers shared with his parents were several guns and explosive devices, prosecutors said.
Rogers is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Rogers was convicted of felony burglary in 2011.
