Three Nevada men were arrested on terrorism-related charges related to causing violence during recent protests to reopen the economy in Las Vegas.
The Associated Press reports the three men, who are white, have ties to a loose movement of right-wing extremists that advocate the overthrow of the U.S. government.
The article goes on to state the following:
All three arrested have military experience and are accused of conspiring to carry out a plan that began in April in conjunction with protests to reopen the state’s economy, which closed because of the coronavirus pandemic. The three reportedly were going to capitalize on protests that sparked last week after the death of George Floyd.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports:
The complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas on Wednesday said they self-identified as part of the “boogaloo” movement, which U.S. prosecutors said in the document is “a term used by extremists to signify coming civil war and/or fall of civilization.”
Stephen T. Parshall, 35, Andrew T. Lynam Jr., 23, and William L. Loomis, 40, were being held on $1 million bond each in the Clark County jail Wednesday, according to court records.
Each currently faces two federal charges — conspiracy to damage and destroy by fire and explosive, and possession of unregistered firearms — along with multiple terrorism-related state charges.
