Another Minnesota ‘Boogaloo Bois’ Member Sentenced in Terrorism Case
Minneapolis (KROC-AM News) - A Twin Cities man who is a member of the “Boogaloo Bois” has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for conspiring to provide support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization. 31-year-old Michael Solomon of New Brighton pleaded guilty last May.
Prosecutors said that in June 2020 Solomon and Benjamin Teeter met with a confidential source, whom they thought to be a member of Hamas. They offered to assist the terrorist organization as a means of furthering the goals of the Boogaloo Bois.
The two men later met with an undercover FBI agent, whom they also believed belonged to Hamas. They offered to manufacture suppressors, untraceable firearms, and fully automatic firearms for the organization.
The two later gave the suppressors to the confidential source and the FBI agent believing they would be used by Hamas. They also agreed to manufacture more suppressors, believing they would be used against Israeli and U.S. military personnel overseas.
The U.S Attorney’s Office says the Boogaloo Bois “is a group of individuals who espouse violent anti-government sentiments.”
