Police were called to the scene of an altercation between the two brothers and a local man who confronted the brother over littering that eventually led to a scary altercation when the brothers charged towards the man. When police were called to the scene they discovered a loaded AK-47, a rifle, handgun, a grenade, ammunition, bomb-making materials, and a drone.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There are growing concerns about the arrest of two brothers with ties to the Middle East who authorities say had an arsenal of bomb-making materials, guns, and ammunition in their car.
Twenty-seven-year-old Abdullah Alrifahe and 26-year-old Majid Alrifahe were arrested on May 11 in North Minneapolis.
Abdullah is being held in the Hennepin County Jail. His brother, Majid, has been released and is facing minor charges.
WCCO-TV has confirmed that both Homeland Security and the FBI are involved in the investigation, which started outside of a federally subsidized senior housing project. A good Samaritan confronted the men about littering from their car.
The man, who asked that his name not to be used for fear of his safety, said the brothers jumped out of their car, moved aggressively toward him and used the N-word. He then called the police.
Inside the brothers’ car, police found 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.
Abdullah Alrifahe had recently been released from jail after serving time for a weapons conviction. He is now facing a single felony weapons charge.
His brother, Majid, has been released from jail and is facing low-level misdemeanor charges, including disorderly conduct.
The most disturbing part about this case is that the two brothers, who were obviously planning a massive terror attack, are just getting away with their crimes, with the driver of the vehicle slapped on the wrist with a mere felony weapons charge. The man who contacted the police about the altercation is speaking out, outraged that the brothers weren’t charged with terrorism.
“For what they found in their car, that is way too light,” he said.
Criminal defense attorney Joe Tamburino is trying to reassure the people of Minneapolis, saying that prosecutors are doing everything they can.
“These people have been charged with what the prosecutors can do right now,” he said, adding that more charges could come down later.
The Minneapolis Police Department is keeping the investigation open, holding Abdullah Alrifahe on $200,000 bail. They are making sure he has no way out seeing as that is an extremely expensive bail. The other brother has unfortunately already been released and declined to comment further on the incident.
It is very fortunate these two men were discovered because who knows what they had planned, no doubt it was the slaughter of countless “infidels”. With stories like these coming out, these lefty officials won’t have a leg to stand on and will undoubtedly begin to be kicked out of public office.
