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.
