FBI Raid Of Minn. Home Disrupted 'Terror Attack'

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The FBI says it believes "a terror attack was disrupted" when authorities raided a western Minnesota mobile home.
    
The FBI arrested 24-year-old Buford Rogers on Friday, after a search of his home in Montevideo turned up Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and firearms.
    
The FBI said in a Monday statement that it believes "the lives of several local residents were potentially saved" by the search and arrest. The agency says a terror plot was discovered through analysis of intelligence gathered by local, state and federal authorities.
    
The statement doesn't offer further details about the extent or manner of the alleged plot.
    
Rogers is in federal custody and is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
