Montevideo Suspect’s Dad: ‘Bucky Is Not A Terrorist’

MONTEVIDEO, Minn. (WCCO) – Federal investigators say they stopped a terror attack when they arrested a Minnesota man for having pipe bombs and illegal guns.

FBI agents arrested Buford Rogers on Friday at his home in Montevideo. They say the arrest thwarted an attack on residents of the western Minnesota town.

Jeff Rogers places his American flag upside down to show what he calls the “tyranny of government.” He says his son Buford – or “Bucky” as he’s known – is part of the Black Snake Militia, and they just want freedom.

“They do not have nothing to fear from any of us,” Rogers said. “We are patriots.”

They’re also afraid the government will implant everyone with a microchip. But, he says that’s very different from plotting violence.

“I have no idea who the hell he’d even be targeting,” he said. “He’s not that kind of a person. I guarantee you that.”

But the FBI disagrees. On Friday, they raided the home Bucky Rogers shares with his parents and found Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and guns.

Neighbors watched the whole thing in disbelief. Dustin Rathbun says it was like a scene out of a movie.

“All of the sudden I hear, ‘This is the FBI. Come out the of trailer…with your hands up,’” Rathbun said.
