Baltimore Member of “Boogaloo” Extremist Movement, Frank William Robertson Perry Pleads Guilty to Illegal Possession of Firearm
Purchased Parts for AR-15 Assault Rifle in Name of his Girlfriend, Had Parts Shipped to her House
Baltimore, MD (STL.News) Frank William Robertson Perry, age 39, of Dundalk, Maryland, pleaded guilty on March 9, 2021, to illegal possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon. Perry admitted that he is an adherent of the Boogaloo Movement. “Boogaloo” is a term referencing a violent uprising or impending civil war and is sometimes used by militia extremists and others. Militia extremists have adopted it to reference an impending politically-motivated civil war or uprising against the government following perceived incursions on Constitutional rights—including the Second Amendment—or other perceived government overreach. The Boogaloo is not a single cohesive group, but rather a loose concept arising from internet platforms which has become a rallying point for some extremists.
The guilty plea was announced by Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Jonathan F. Lenzner; Special Agent in Charge Jennifer C. Boone of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office; and Special Agent in Charge Timothy Jones of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Baltimore Field Division.
