On the night of May 28, 2020, Dylan Shakespeare Robinson, 23, helped ignite a Molotov cocktail for another person to throw at the MPD’s Third Precinct barracks, according to the Daily Mail and federal filings in the case.
Prosecutors said he was part of a four-man conspiracy to commit the arson arc at the building, and helped demolish the fence fence at the site.
Nearby branches such as Wendy’s, Target, Walmart and Autozone also suffered looting and fire damage due to the ascent.
Surveillance cameras ooze Robinson on the night of the fire attack, according to MPD information.
