ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- An FBI agent has testified that a witness said a western Minnesota man was involved in an alleged plot to bomb the Montevideo police station.
FBI special agent Shane Ball testified Tuesday the witness said 24-year-old Buford "Bucky" Rogers also was planning to attack a communications tower and a National Guard armory.
Rogers was arrested May 3 in what the FBI called "a terror plot." However, three weeks later a federal grand jury did not indict Rogers on terrorism charges.
Rogers' federal defender did not immediately return a phone message for comment Tuesday. But the Star Tribune reports Rogers' father, Jeffrey, said the witness was "lying through his teeth."
A U.S. magistrate also ordered the unsealing of six documents in the case at the request of the Star Tribune.
