Disrupted “Terror Plot” in Montevideo Was Uncovered by Friend of Suspect 25 Jul 13

A newly unsealed court document says a Texas man tipped the FBI that a
man he visited in western Minnesota was involved in more than just an
ordinary protest movement.

The search warrant affidavit was made public Wednesday under an order
from a federal magistrate judge on a motion to unseal it and other
filings in the case of Buford Rogers. The 24-year-old was arrested in
May what the FBI called a “terror plot” but was indicted only on
weapons charges.

According to the document, the unnamed informant, from San Antonio, told the FBI he spent time with the Rogers family at their home near Montevideo, but left in late April when he believed Rogers was preparing an attack on a police station and other targets.
