I thought they were supposed to be peaceful protesters?
Bail was set at $100,000 for 19-year-old Dakota Moss from Centralia, Illinois after his arrest in connection with a string of local crimes including burglary and theft of dozens of firearms.
Moss and a 17 year-old accomplice discussed selling the guns to Ferguson protesters.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:
A teen from Centralia, Ill., faces charges in federal court here accusing him of stealing 39 guns with the thought of selling them to Ferguson protesters, according to court documents.
Dakota R. Moss, 19, told investigators that after a store burglary Nov. 29, he and a juvenile accomplice, 17, discussed traveling to Ferguson. They also allegedly had plans to loot Ferguson stores, although local police called it just “big talk.”
The two used a pickup truck stolen from a high school in Centralia to ram security gates of a Buchheit farm and home store, according to an affidavit by Special Agent Adam Ulery of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Centralia is about 60 miles east of St. Louis.
