Prosecutors: Man amassed weapons cache for Islamic State

Detroit – A Detroit man accused of plotting to use grenades to kill people and wage violent jihad on behalf of the Islamic State is dangerous and backed by a group of like-minded supporters in Maryland, federal prosecutors said Thursday.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office made the claim in a court filing while fighting a defense request to free Sebastian Gregerson, aka Abdurrahman Bin Mikaayl, from jail pending trial.

The filing is the first time prosecutors have alleged publicly that Gregerson was part of a broader group of Islamic State supporters. Gregerson, 30, allegedly told an undercover FBI agent that he was amassing a weapons arsenal — including grenades, AK-47s, handguns, rifles, a shotgun and thousands of rounds of ammunition — and wanted to arm like-minded Islamic State supporters in a fight against “infidels.”
