MEDIA SILENCE: ISIS Muslim Captured . . . in Detroit . . . With Grenade Launcher and Grenades!
An ISIS Muslim has been captured in Detroit, armed with a 37-mm grenade launcher, 37-mm grenades, a loaded AK-47 rifle, a shotgun w/shell carrier, six AK-47 magazines with 40 rounds of ammo in each and a ballistics vest with military grade plates.
Sebastian Gregerson, also known as Abdurrahman Bin Mikaayl, 29, is charged in a criminal complaint filed Monday with unregistered possession of a destructive device and unlicensed receipt of explosive materials.
A Facebook account belonging to a user with the name Abdurrahman Bin Mikaayl, and a hometown of Dearborn, includes an image of man on a horse carrying the Islamic State flag. The criminal complaint says he is a resident of Detroit.
A source alerted the FBI that Gregerson claimed to have grenades and bazookas, which prompted an investigation.

The items included “seven fixed-blade knives of significant length, hundreds of rounds of AK-47 ammunition, two balaclava ski masks (covering all but the eyes), a car holster, and a Kalashnikov training video,” according to records.
According to agents, the purchase of training videos for the weapons made it unlikely that they were purchased for recreational use.
Records showed that Gregerson purchased road spikes on eBay.
Court-authorized tracking of Gregerson’s location indicated that he visited an outdoors store in Dearborn and bought a long-barreled firearm with a barrel that folds upward and back, reducing the length of the weapon and making it easier to conceal, authorities said.
An FBI surveillance team said it saw Gregerson buy a pistol in the parking lot of a gas station in Belleville.
