Another thug has been arrested and charged for his role in the destruction caused by the ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter riots.
Alexander Steven Heil, 22, of Monticello, Minnesota, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for taking part in setting fire to a Wells Fargo Bank branch in South Minneapolis a few days after the death of George Floyd.
According to federal court documents, Heil chose to plead guilty in September to one count of conspiracy to commit arson. The plea agreement notes that Heil admitted to adding fuel to the existing fire after other rioters started the blaze on May 28, 2020, at the Wells Fargo across from the 5th Precinct headquarters of the Minneapolis Police Department.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office shared the news of the ANTIFA thug being charged on Twitter:

A news release issued by the U.S. Department of Justice states that, after he serves his prison term, Heil will also be required to serve three years of supervised release.
The Minnesota Star Tribune reported on the fact that Heil and another man, Marc Bell Gonzales, 29, from Wayzata, were charged, writing: “Federal authorities charged two suburban Twin Cities men with conspiring to set a Wells Fargo Bank building ablaze near the Fifth Precinct police station as riots over #GeorgeFloyd‘s police killing raged in May.”
