FBI Agents raided the California home of the man charged with the attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday night; they busted down the front door after obtaining a search warrant.
The agents also spoke to neighbors and witnesses in the area.
“They were always nice people so it’s a surprise more than anything,” neighbor Zach Quadri told CBS News of Roske’s family.
From The New York Post…
Roske was arrested earlier Wednesday outside Kavanaugh’s home in Montgomery County, Maryland, where he had shown up with a backpack and suitcase containing a Glock 17 pistol, ammunition, a knife, tactical gear, pepper spray and other items, including zip ties, a hammer, a screwdriver and duct tape.
The 26-year-old was apprehended after calling 911 and telling the operator that he was having “suicidal thoughts” and had a firearm in his suitcase.
Roske also allegedly confided in the emergency communications dispatcher that “he traveled from California to Maryland to kill a specific Supreme Court Justice,” according to a US Justice Department press release.
The suspect was charged with one count of attempting to murder or kidnap a US judge, which is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
According to court documents, Roske told investigators that he “began thinking about how to give his life purpose and decided that he would kill the Supreme Court Justice.”
