MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A militia member indicted in what the FBI once characterized as a terror plot to blow up a west-central Minnesota police station has pleaded guilty to weapons charges.

Twenty-five-year-old Buford Braden Rogers of Montevideo entered his plea Friday in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis.

Rogers pleaded guilty to one count of possessing a firearm illegally and one count of possessing an unregistered destructive device, namely "two black powder and nail devices."

Two other counts, including charges related to possessing two Molotov cocktails and a pipe bomb, are expected to be dismissed at sentencing.

Judge Ann Montgomery ordered Rogers to remain in custody until sentencing. A date has not been set.
