MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A self-described member of an anti-government extremist group accused of taking advantage of the unrest after George Floyd’s killing to raise money for the movement pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court.

Authorities say Michael Robert Solomon, 31, of New Brighton, Minnesota, sold silencers and other firearm components to FBI informants he believed were members of the Hamas terror group, Solomon faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Solomon is one of four men charged in Minnesota since last September to have been identified as members of the Boogaloo Bois, who frequently show up at protests armed with rifles and wearing Hawaiian shirts. Benjamin Ryan Teeter, 22, of Hampstead, North Carolina, pleaded guilty in December to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
