Kenosha police and United States Marshals on the evening of Wednesday August 26, 2020 responded to a citizen tip that several suspicious vehicles with out of state plates were meeting in a remote lot near State Highway 50 and Green Bay Road.
Police located the suspicious vehicles and took up surveillance, assisted by the United States Marshals. The vehicles were a black school bus, a bread truck and a tan minivan. Kenosha police confirmed that the vehicles had out of state license plates, and followed the vehicles as they traveled to a gas station near Washington Road and 30th Avenue. Police observed the occupants of the black bus and bread truck exit and attempt to fill multiple fuel cans.
Law enforcement officers suspected that the occupants of the vehicles were preparing for criminal activity related to the civil unrest, and attempted to make contact with the vehicle occupants and investigate the scene.
The law enforcement officers, while wearing proper identification exited their vehicles, identified themselves, and then detained the occupants of the bus and bread truck.
The driver of the minivan attempted to drive away; however, Kenosha police officers stopped the vehicle and ultimately forced entry into the minivan and arrested the occupants.
The vehicles contained helmets, gas masks, protective vests, illegal fireworks, and suspected controlled substances.Nine individuals were arrested accused of disorderly conduct, and are pending charging decisions by the Kenosha County District Attorney, according to the Kenosha Police Department.
