DUNDALK, Md. — The FBI arrested a Dundalk man they say is a member of a far-right extremist movement.

Frank Perry was taken into custody by federal agents Wednesday night, after a raid of his home, which found an assault rifle, ammunition and a tactical vest.

Perry was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to court documents, a federal agent identified Perry as being a member of far-right extremist anti-government movement called “Boogaloo”.

In the criminal complaint, the term “Boogaloo” is a term “referencing a violent uprising and impending civil war and is sometimes used by militia extremists and racially or ethnically motivated extremists.”

Several of the men charged in the plot to kidnap Michigan’s governor were also supporters of the movement.

As of now, there is no connection between the two cases.

Neighbors say Perry lived of Quentin Road for a couple of years.

He lived with his girlfriend.

Investigators say they traced the purchase of gun parts and ammunition in her name, but they believe Perry actually made those buys.

At this time, she is not facing any charges.

During an October 19 arraignment, Perry who remains in prison, pleaded not guilty.

If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in federal prison.
