Bundy militia bro charged with trying to detonate a bomb at a government facility in Arizona
Yet another member of the Bundy militia is in trouble with the law again.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that 57-year-old William Keebler was arrested this week and charged with attempting to detonate a bomb at a Bureau of Land Management facility in Arizona.
Keebler, who took part in the 2014 standoff with federal land administrators near Cliven Bundy’s ranch, told undercover FBI agents that he planned to target a BLM building in Mount Trumbull, Ariz. The FBI agents, in turn, created a non-working explosive device for Keebler to use at the facility, which Keebler first started scouting as a target in October 2015.
Keebler planted the device at the BLM building on Tuesday and tried to detonate it, without luck. He was arrested the next day.
If convicted, Keebler could face between five to 20 years in federal prison.
