Wolverine Watchmen Ty Garbin denied bail in Gov. Whitmer Kidnapping Case

Additional suspects charged in kidnapping plot against Gov. Whitmer

14th suspect arrested in alleged plot to kidnap Michigan governor

An eighth man has now been charged in the case.

Two more men accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will be held without bond before trial.

Police arrested Higgins in Wisconsin on Thursday and he is jailed pending extradition to MI, where he's expected to face trial alongside seven other suspects charged with crimes under Michigan's anti-terrorism and firearms statutes. He allegedly brought night-vision goggles to aid surveillance of Whitmer's home.

The eight men are members of the militia group Wolverine Watchmen or are associates of the group, the attorney general's office said.

Additional information released Friday includes screenshots of encrypted text messages among the men, crudely drawn maps, and photos of a bridge near the governor's vacation home that they planned to blow up in order to create a distraction.

A sixth man, DE resident Barry Croft, was separately ordered to be transferred to MI earlier this week.

Adam Fox, 37, of Grand Rapids, Ty Garbin, 24, of Hartland Township, Kaleb Franks, 26, of Waterford, Daniel Harris, 23, of Lake Orion and Brandon Caserta, 33, of Canton, were all named in the criminal complaint.

Individual defendants also participated in surveillance of Whitmer's northern MI home, Kessler said, rejecting defence attorneys' implication that the men participated in paramilitary group exercises without a specific goal or plan. Sgt. Michael Fink said in an affidavit released Thursday.

"At least some of the defendants participated in various demonstrations at the Michigan Capitol building over the past several months", the attorney general's office says.

The state suspects hoped that by attacking the capitol and law enforcement officers, they would "instigate a civil war leading to societal collapse", Nessel said. The arrest warrant says Higgins participated in the plan to kidnap Whitmer by November 3, the date of the presidential election, between March 1 and October 12.

"The fact that (the plan) was likely to be unsuccessful or hard to accomplish" isn't relevant to decide whether there is probable cause that they made a plan, she said.

Wisconsin man Brian Higgins was charged Thursday in the state case with material assistance of an act of terrorism. A court date has not been scheduled.
