A man wanted in the burning of a Minneapolis Police station on May 28th during the riots that engulfed the city has been arrested in Denver, Colorado. 22-year old Dylan Robertson is being charged with aiding and abetting arson for the fire that destroyed the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct station.
The Minneapolis Police had retreated from the precinct station as riots consumed the city following the death of George Floyd during an arrest. The destruction of the station kicked off riots in other cities across the country.
According to charging documents, a woman recognized Robertson in a video of the arson circulated to the public with the hope of discerning his identity. She contacted the ATF and identified the arsonist as Robertson, a resident of Brainerd, Minnesota.
The man is allegedly identifiable in surveillance camera footage, distinctively wearing a white shirt with a black stripe.
The ATF went on to locate Robinson in Colorado through GPS tracking of his mobile phone. The man appears to have fled the vicinity of the Twin Cities in the aftermath of the riots, knowing that federal authorities were seeking him out for arrest.

Robinson is already on probation for a previous drug conviction, and it’s likely he’ll face a lengthy sentence if convicted. In charging documents, ATF agents allege that Robinson spoke of making molotov cocktail incendiary devices on his Snapchat story in the presence of other possible rioters the night of the arson. Another Snapchat story allegedly shows the devices being deployed in the stairwell of the police precinct.
Robinson made his first court appearance remotely in a Denver courtroom in Tuesday. Authorities have hinted that he’s not the only suspect wanted in the arson, and that they’re actively seeking to make more arrests. The ATF is offering a $70,000 reward for information that leads to more arrests in the arson incident.
Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds
Weren’t they peaceful protestors?
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.
Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”
Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”
“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” demanded Governor Walz. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.”
The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.
In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
