Two men were arrested by the FBI in a sting operation for allegedly attempting to purchase explosives to be used in Ferguson protests, CBS News reported Friday night.
According to CBS News, the men were arrested Thursday for attempting to purchase the materials for pipe bombs.
The individuals were arraigned Friday and are allegedly members of the New Black Panthers, according to CBS News.
Meanwhile, St. Louis Today reports the men have been indicted on weapons charges for allegedly making purchases of two handguns at the Cabela’s sporting goods store in Hazelwood. The publication names Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis to be the two detainees.
According to the indictment, between November 1 and 13 the men acquired two Hi-Point .45 ACP pistols but the weapons were intended to be handed over to someone else.
A police source also said the investigation leading to the arrest spanned several months. Local and federal authorities executed search warrants at two residences in north St. Louis County. The source told St. Louis Today that the raids produced information that the detained had planned to obtain illegal weapons to do harm to law enforcement and the public.
After the arrest, one of the leaders of the New Black Panther Party, Chawn Kweli, posted a message on his blog blaming the operation on Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO).
“The wicked enemies of black people use lies and deceit to confuse the masses and misdirect the legitimate aspirations of the black power movement,” Kweli wrote. “As seen, in St. Louis, Mo, with the arrest of Chairman Olajawon Ali, and other activist ahead of the decision on whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson for killing Mike Brown – or not!”
Just a note, they have both been identified on the New Black Panther site as Brandon Baldwin Muhammad and Olajuwon Davis Ali, indicating they are both Muslims.
Here’s Olajuwon Ali expounding on how to be a ‘sovereign citizen’ so one cannot be taxed or under an obligation to follow some laws:
