Residents of New Mexico compound indicted on federal charges

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Five residents of a ramshackle desert compound in New Mexico are scheduled for arraignments and detention hearings after being indicted by a federal grand jury on firearms and conspiracy charges.

Federal prosecutors say the group was preparing for violent attacks on government, military, educational and financial institutions at the time of their arrests last month.

The five members of an extended family are expected to appear in federal court in Albuquerque on Wednesday afternoon.

The grand jury indictment Tuesday alleges they transported firearms and ammunition from Georgia to New Mexico in December 2017.

Eleven children were removed from the squalid compound near the Colorado state line during an Aug. 3 raid by Taos County authorities.
