Brainerd man expected to face charges today for his role in burning the Minneapolis police station


A 22-year-old Brainerd man was apprehended this week in Colorado for his alleged role in burning the Minneapolis Police Department’s third precinct headquarters during the May 28 protests over the murder of George Floyd, federal sources reported.

Dylan Robinson is scheduled to appear in court at 3 p.m. today, June 16, in a Colorado federal courtroom. Charges against Robinson will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota. Federal sources in Minneapolis declined to provide further information Tuesday afternoon as the case records are sealed until Robinson is charged. However, federal sources did state the information released on social media by the United States Marshals Service and U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives regarding Robinson’s arrest was correct.

Robinson was one of several suspects wanted for burning the Minneapolis police station. He was taken into custody Sunday by ATF agents and U.S. Marshals in Breckenridge, Colorado, as reported by The Denver Post.

Robinson is being detained without bail on arson related charges in Denver’s Downtown Detention Center, jail records showed,


The ATF this week released photos of 14 suspects and announced a $70,000 reward to help identify people believed to be involved with setting fires in the Twin Cities, The Denver Post reported.

More details will be released on the Brainerd Dispatch website at once charges are filed and the case is unsealed.
