MINNESOTASTAN: Routine arrest of Somali Muslims leads police to find an arsenal of weapons and bomb-making materials

According to police, a man walked by a parked car in north Minneapolis and confronted the Muslims inside after they threw dirty food wrappers on the ground. They ignored him until he paused to get the car license number, then they got out of the car and indicated they had guns.

Star Tribune The man flagged down officers, the complaint says, but the men from inside car continued to yell at him and resisted the officers’ attempts to control the situation, so the Muslims were placed in the squad car while officers searched their car. Inside, the officers found a hand grenade, handgun, assault rifles and magazines and a large quantity of ammunition. They also found cellphones, computers and electronics equipment, including drone parts, that could be used for bomb-making, the complaint said.
