Frederick Thomas, Dan Roberts, Ray Adams and Samuel Crump accused over alleged Georgia militia plot

Four men from the US state of Georgia have been accused of plotting to buy explosives and create a deadly toxin. Frederick Thomas, 73; Dan Roberts, 67; Ray Adams, 65; and Samuel Crump, 68 were allegedly planning to attack unspecified government offices.

It’s alleged that the men were attempting to create ricin, a deadly toxin that can kill even in small quantities. The plot is alleged to have been ongoing for a number of months, with an undercover informant allegedly selling some of the men various items as part of a federal investigation.

Family members have described the allegations as completely false, saying that the men are innocent. Some of the men are believed to be former US service personnel. The US government has said that the case is a reminder of the need to remain alert to domestic threats.
