Three residents of Lansing, Michigan, were arrested Monday afternoon for conspiring to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, namely the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Michigan charged all three with criminal conspiracy charges punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison, filed in a criminal complaint in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
