BEND, OR -- The FBI arrested a man who had been an embedded reporter during the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Michael Emry was taken into custody Friday on weapons charges.
He runs a website called “The Voice of Idaho,” and was associated with the "3 Percenters" - a group that sympathized with and supported the militia during the Harney County standoff.
Emry had recently moved from Idaho to John Day. During a search of his trailer, the FBI seized a 50-caliber machine gun capable of firing more than 550 rounds per minute. The serial number had been removed from the gun.
