When you are being investigated and you don’t know it. Thankfully the FBI were on the scene for this guy. Looked like he had some big plans for his jihad.
An alleged ISIS sympathizer has been arrested after buying explosives from an undercover FBI.
Muslim convert Sebastian Gregerson, aka Abdurrahman Bin Mikaayl, from Dearborn, Michigan, has been accused of stockpiling weapons to carry out an attack
The 29-year-old, who has worked at Target and Wal-Mart, has been charged with unregistered possession of a destructive device and unlicensed receipt of explosive materials.
The complaint reveals a counterterrorism investigation that began in April 2015 following a tip that Gregerson had weapons.
The FBI said he bought grenades on Sunday from the undercover agent in Monroe.
He was then taken into custody.
Documents said he purchased ‘an arsenal of weapons, ammunition, tactical gear and tactical training materials.’
It doesn’t say whether Gregerson was planning an attack or why he was purchasing explosives. The U.S. attorney’s office in Detroit hasn’t elaborated.
In June, the FBI said Gregerson bought road spikes online that can be used to slow or disable vehicles. Other purchases included tactical training items, including handguns and dummy rounds.
