FBI: Three Antifa Members Arrested After Looting Target Store in Austin

Mike Brest, Washington Examiner, June 8, 2020

The FBI arrested three people who it says are members of antifa for looting a Target in Austin, Texas, late last month.

The three people, identified as Lisa Hogan, 27, Samuel Miller, 22, and Skye Elder, 23, were among a group of about 20 people who broke into the building, stole items, and damaged property on May 31, according to KSAT.

Hogan was charged with rioting and burglary of a building, Miller was charged with criminal mischief and burglary of a building, and Elder was charged with burglary of a building. Bond was set at $25,000 per charge for each person.

Members of the Austin Police Department Special Response Team arrived shortly after the break-in and apprehended the trio. The property damages and stolen merchandise have been valued at more than $20,000.


Attorney General William Barr said that “many places” across the country were seeing violent protests spurred by “anarchic” and “far-left extremist groups.” He added that agitators were using “antifalike tactics” and that many of them were traveling from out of state to participate in the protests.
