Montevideo Man Indicted for Having Molotov Cocktails

Buford Rogers, Chippewa County Jail

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted a western Minnesota man for allegedly possessing Molotov cocktails and a pipe bomb.

Twenty-four-year-old Buford Rogers of Montevideo was arrested earlier this month in what the FBI has called a thwarted terror plot.

But Tuesday’s indictment does not include any terrorism charges. Rogers was indicted on one count of possessing two Molotov cocktails, one count of possessing two black powder and nail devices, and one count of possessing a pipe bomb.

Rogers also was indicted on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, a Romanian assault rifle. Rogers has a 2011 conviction for burglary and is not allowed to have a firearm.

The FBI has said it stopped a terror attack that was in its planning stages, potentially saving lives.
