Leader of Occupation of Federal Building in Oregon Said FBI Raid Is Coming

oregonBy Steve Neavling

The leader of the armed group occupying a federal building in Oregon said he believes the FBI plans to raid the property soon after obtaining five arrest warrants, Fox 6 News reports. 

Ammon Bundy said he’s been told that the FBI is preparing a raid, which local and federal authorities would not confirm.

Local police and the FBI continue to say they are seeking a peaceful resolution.

The group is protesting the five-year prison sentences of two local ranchers who have since distanced themselves from the protest group.

“The FBI is working with the Harney County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police and other local and state law enforcement agencies to bring a peaceful resolution to the situation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge,” the FBI’s Portland office said in a statement.

A disgruntled ex-cop with a loaded gun managed to bypass metal detectors and enter an FBI office using a fake police badge and inactive ID card, ABC News reports.

The ease with which the man entered the building has concerned federal authorities.

“He could’ve shot up half the office by that point,” one law enforcement expert told ABC.

Still, the Justice Department insists no one was in danger.

Lawmakers aren’t convinced.

“This latest report of a security breach at a federal building is concerning,” the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., told ABC News in a statement. “After our committee’s close review of the security practices and procedures at federal facilities in the wake of the tragic shooting at the Washington Navy Yard [last year], it became clear that the quality of the physical security at our federal buildings is in need of improvement, and this incident underscores that finding.”
