St. Cloud Man Charged in Georgia Military Militia Case

Court ActionSAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) – Prosecutors in southeast Georgia have charged five more men — one with ties to St. Cloud — in connection with an anti-government militia that authorities say was led by Army soldiers from Fort Stewart.

The men are accused of committing thefts, burglaries and auto break-ins to fund the militia group.

The new charges come after prosecutors last month announced that four Fort Stewart soldiers charged with killing two people in December belonged to a militia group they say planned to bomb a park fountain in Savannah, poison apple crops in Washington state and overthrow the U.S. government. Authorities say they spent at least $87,000 on weapons.

One of the men facing charges is 26-year-old Christopher Jenderseck of St. Cloud.  Jenderseck is a 2004 Apollo High School graduate.

Durden says he’s been told none of the five latest suspects currently serve in the Army, but at least three of them are former soldiers.
