NBC Chicago reported:


A 19-year-old Illinois parolee who helped raid a store of dozens of assault-style rifles and other firearms planned to sell the cache to protesters in Missouri’s Ferguson and “go to war just for the hell of it,” federal authorities allege in charging him with four felonies.

Dakota Moss of Centralia, about 60 miles east of St. Louis, remained jailed Friday, two days after being charged with stealing firearms from a federal firearms licensee, carrying a firearm during a violent crime, possessing a stolen firearm and being a felon with a firearm.

All but four of the 39 firearms, including semi-automatic handguns and AR-15 rifles, stolen during the heist early Nov. 29 of the Buchheit farm-and-home supply store in Centralia had been recovered as of Friday, prosecutors said. At least 1,000 rounds of ammunition also were taken during the burglary, authorities said.

The break-in came five days after sometimes-violent protests resurfaced in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson after a grand jury decided not to indict white police officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting death of black, unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown.
