Montevideo man's weapons trial delayed
MINNEAPOLIS - Federal court officials say a Montevideo, Minn., man’s trial on weapons charges has been delayed a second time, this time to Dec. 2.
The trial had been scheduled to start Wednesday in Minneapolis.
Also, a federal magistrate ordered Buford “Bucky” Rogers held in jail until the trial. Magistrate Judge Jeanne Graham said Rogers has a history of not appearing at court hearings.
The 24-year-old man is being held on charges of having a firearm and other destructive devices such as two Molotov cocktails and a pipe bomb.
Originally, the FBI said Rogers was planning a Montevideo terrorist attack, but he has not been charged with terrorism.
He was arrested May 3.
