United States Attorney Erica H. MacDonald today announced a federal criminal complaint against DYLAN SHAKESPEARE ROBINSON, 22, charging him with aiding and abetting arson at the Minneapolis Police Departments Third Precinct. ROBINSON, who was arrested on June, 14, 2020, in Breckenridge, Colorado, made his initial appearance earlier today, before Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter in U.S. District Court in Denver.
According to the allegations in the complaint, on the night of May 28, 2020, the Minneapolis Police Departments Third Precinct was overrun and heavily damaged due to vandalism and arson. Investigators identified multiple separate fires had been started in the building. Surveillance video footage from the Third Precinct shows two individuals light a Molotov cocktail and throw it at the Third Precinct building. One of the individuals can be seen throwing a second Molotov cocktail at the Third Precinct building. Investigators with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) were able to identify ROBINSON in the surveillance video.
According to the allegations in the complaint, ATF investigators reviewed a video posted on ROBINSONs Snapchat account that shows at least one individual appearing to make a Molotov cocktail while multiple unidentified voices provide directions on how to make the device. During the video, ROBINSON typed several comments, including These guys have never made a Molotov Rookies, and We need gasoline. Investigators reviewed another Snapchat video in which ROBINSON can be seen setting a fire in a stairwell inside the Third Precinct. On the evening of June 12, 2020, investigators located ROBINSON in the Denver, Colorado area. ROBINSON was arrested on June, 14, 2020, in Breckenridge, Colorado.
The ATF and FBI urge the public to report suspected arson, use of explosive devices, or violent, destructive acts associated with the recent unrest.

Anyone with digital material or tips can call 1-800-CALLFBI (800-225-5324) or submit images or videos at FBI.gov/violence.

Definitely one of Saint Floyds peeps.
Parents should be named as co-conspirators for nameing him “Dylan”, with penalty enhancement for naming him Shakespeare”
Dylan Shakespeare Robinson, funny,that doesn’t sound Amish
His parents must be so proud. Wonder who they are and what they think of their son.
Ok. He’s fleeing the interview!
He’s fleeing the interview!
This pretty boy will do really well in prison /s. And if he thinks he can ingratiate his fellow inmates with his BLM eff the police schtick he’s got another thing coming, in more ways than one.
Cliche guess will be his father absent home life featured a mentally ill feminist liberal mother.
Seeing him I would being to feel pity for him (part of my old pre- Civil War II self coming back, but then I would know he could decide to slash people throats with a razor, put a bomb under their car engine, or burn down a row of apartments with people trapped inside. That’s what leftists do. No room for pity. This is war.
Arson story: Not everyone had evacuated every exciting fire video they show on TV news. When a building at the university where I worked was burning down, a college student knew that one man might be inside. He ran into the fire and rescued him.
It was a black, old custodian he had been friends with before and he knew the man slept on the job in a little room he had made up with a mattress. He was totally deaf. The student made his through the smoke and frantically told him to come along to escape. He looked around, mystified but did so and his life was saved.
What a waste of skin!
Haven’t heard about anyone being busted for buring down private businesses yet
Dude looks like a lady to bubba should like him just fine
Well the guy just screwed his life up real good....and likely couldn’t care about what the protest was about. Sounds like with a drug history he was already screwing himself up.
Parents? who knows what they think....
“So, you were having sex with the little fella then?”
For the first time in his life he will be popular.
I was hoping we could take care of this, in Brainerd.
You know, take care of this. In Brainerd.
