Magistrate: Allow Evidence in Minnesota Weapons Case

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A federal magistrate is recommending that statements made by a western Minnesota man be allowed at his trial on weapons charges.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeanne Graham recommended Thursday that the judge deny Buford “Bucky” Rogers’ request to suppress Rogers’ statements and evidence gathered in a raid on his father’s mobile home outside Montevideo.

Buford Rogers was arrested May 3 in what the FBI called “a terror plot.”  However, a federal grand jury did not indict him on terrorism charges. He was indicted on four felony counts, including being a felon in possession of a firearm and three counts of possessing “unregistered destructive devices.”  The magistrate found Rogers voluntarily waived his Miranda rights when an FBI agent interviewed him.

Rogers has pleaded not guilty. His trial is scheduled for Oct. 2.
