2 Men Arrested in Alleged Plot to Attack Cops With Rocket Launchers
Authorities say they’ve disarmed a plot to attack Florida police officers, thanks to a tip from a county jail inmate.
The Marion County Sheriff's Office arrested 32-year-old Christopher Conger and 29-year-old Jeremy Robertson in connection with the alleged plot.
Police say an informant’s tip led them to a shed of illegal firearms, explosives and drugs – including 22 guns, gun powder, cocaine, marijuana and pills.
Authorities are still looking for a rocket propelled grenade launcher that the two men had allegedly planned to use.
The informant’s tip suggested that Conger and Robertson planned to launch a wave of terror on the Eustis Police Department, a church and a youth camp.
The alleged motive was due to a grudge against the police department.
Conger and Robertson are being held on more than $20,000 bond each.
