BURNS, Ore. (AP) — With the takeover of a remote Oregon wildlife preserve entering its fourth day, members of the armed group say they fear a federal raid.
Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum says that he believes federal officials have issued warrants for the arrest of five group members — including himself and Ammon Bundy — but Finicum offered no details.
The FBI in Portland referred calls to the Harney County Joint Information Center, which said in a statement it had no information on arrests or arrest warrants and that authorities were “still working on a peaceful resolution.”
Bundy said they would take a defensive position anticipating a possible raid. Late Tuesday, the group moved a large plow vehicle to block the refuge’s driveway.
