Heavily Armed Militia Group Arrested on Rt. 95 In Wakefield Massachusetts

Wakefield, Massachusetts - Police were in a standoff with a heavily armed militia group in Wakefield Massachusetts and have shut down Rt.95. Members of SWAT converged on the parking lot of the 99 restaurant in Stoneham, as the police have issued a shelter in place order to local residents. The men are calling themselves the Rise of the Moors and State Police said that they claim that they do not recognize our laws, but videos posted to social media by the group show them saying that they are not Anti Government or Anti Law and are citing that they have not broken any laws. Two suspects were arrested initially and police arrested 9 more of the heavily armed group, armed to the teeth with tactical gear, long guns and handguns, once the standoff de-escalated.
