The incident occurred on May 11.
Both brothers Abdullah Alrifahe, 27, and Majid Alrifahe, 26, were arrested outside a senior housing project in north Minneapolis.
This however, was not a case of Homeland Security or the FBI tracking their activity.
No, the Alrifahe brothers whom have ties to the Middle East got arrested, essentially, for littering.
They were parked outside a senior housing project when a man confronted them about littering from their car.
Most people would either ignore or listen and comply with the man, but they decided to jump out of their vehicle and ‘move aggressively’ towards him.
That’s when the police were called.
Thanks to this persnickety man, police discovered a HUGE cache of weapons in the trunk of their car.
Inside was a loaded AK-47, another rifle, a handgun, a grenade, large amounts of ammunition, and what would later be identified as bomb-making materials, including a drone.
That’s enough to kill a few hundred people.
What the brothers intended to do with all of those weapons is unclear.
But lucky for all of us, Homeland Security and the FBI are now on the case! (sense the sarcasm?)
The elderly brother Abdullah had recently been released from jail after serving time for a weapons conviction.
He is now facing a single felony weapons charge, with bail of $200k; while Majid is roaming around free and faces a low-level misdemeanor charge, including disorderly conduct.
The man who reported the crime is outraged the charges aren’t serious enough.
“For what they found in their car, that is way too light,” he said.
