Feds bust second suspect in Minneapolis police precinct fire

The US Marshals Service in Colorado has arrested a man sought in the May 28 arson fire that gutted a Minneapolis police precinct amid protests over the death of George Floyd, according to reports.

Dylan Robinson, 22, was picked up in Breckenridge, Colorado, on Sunday and is facing federal arson charges, the Marshals Service said on Twitter.

Robinson was busted in the parking lot of a local recreation center, Fox affiliate KDVR-TV reported.

He is the second suspect charged in the Third Precinct fire that forced police to abandoned the stationhouse, three days after Floyd’s death in police custody in Minneapolis sparked worldwide protests and weeks of clashes between demonstrators and police.

Branden Wolfe, 23, was arrested by federal prosecutors in Minnesota on June 3 and charged with arson for rolling a burning barrel into the precinct. Wolfe was also charged with stealing body armor, a police radio and other items from the precinct.

Authorities have not said why Robinson had fled to Colorado, nor how long he had been in the state.

According to Denver jail records, he was being held without bail at the Downtown Detention Center, and due in federal court in the city Tuesday afternoon, when the charges against him are expected to be unsealed, KMGH-TV in Denver said Tuesday.
