Grand Jury Indicts 3 Men On Terror Charges Over Protest Plot

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Three men that prosecutors say have ties to an anti-government movement and tried to spark violence during recent Las Vegas protests were indicted on terrorism charges by a county grand jury Wednesday.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported the charges in the indictment are similar to a complaint filed by prosecutors earlier this month, charging 23-year-old Andrew T. Lynam Jr., 35-year-old Stephen T. Parshall and 40-year-old William L. Loomis each with felony terrorism and explosives charges.

The grand jury indictment allows the case to go directly to trial and skip a preliminary hearing where evidence is presented.
