MINNEAPOLIS - The FBI says it believes authorities thwarted a terror attack in a search of a western Minnesota 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 Monday it believes the search and arrest potentially saved the lives of several local residents. The FBI says a terror plot was discovered through analysis of intelligence gathered by local, state and federal authorities.
Rogers is in federal custody. He was arrested Friday on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
