Grand jury indicts 4 Georgia militia suspectsGrand jury indicts 4 Georgia militia suspects accused of plotting ricin attacks
ATLANTA (AP) ' A federal grand jury has indicted four suspected members of a Georgia militia who are charged with plotting attacks with toxins and explosives against unidentified government officials.
The grand jury indictment Thursday charges 73-year-old Frederick Thomas and 67-year-old Dan Roberts with conspiring to obtain an explosive and possessing an unregistered silencer.
It also charges 65-year-old Ray Adams and 68-year-old Samuel Crump with conspiring and attempting to make ricin, a biological toxin that can be lethal in small doses.
If convicted, the men could face more than a decade in prison. A bail hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
Relatives of two of the men say the charges are baseless.
