A 23-year-old man from Brainerd has pleaded guilty to helping set a fire at the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct on May 28.
Dylan Robinson pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit arson, the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a news release. A sentencing date has not been scheduled.
The news release, citing Robinson's guilty plea and court documents, says Robinson the night of May 28 went to the Third Precinct where a crowd of hundreds was gathered.
He and others breached a fence meant to keep protesters out of the building and lit a device, which another person threw toward the precinct, the release said.
Robinson was among four Minnesota men to be federally indicted in connection to the arson at the precinct. Bryce Michael Williams, 26, of Staples, Davon D-Andre Turner, 24, of St. Paul, and Branden Michael Wolfe, 23, of St. Paul, were also charged.
The U.S. Attorney's Office has charged 14 people with federal arson-related charges in connection to the civil unrest in the Twin Cities following the police killing of George Floyd on May 25, MPR News reported.
