Meet 20-year-old “security guard” Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame, the 10th person arrested in the Minneapolis, Minn. area on charges of conspiring with ISIS:

According to the FBI complaint, Warsame was the leader of the “cell”:

More from Minnesota Public Radio:

Warsame also is accused of providing one of the defendants, Adnan Farah, $200 for Farah’s passport application, and seeking to put another traveler, Yusuf Jama, in touch with ISIS contacts.

He was charged with providing support to a foreign terrorist organization, as well as conspiring to do so.

A phone call to his mother Wednesday night was not returned.

Warsame knew that investigators were interested in him. Family members told MPR News the FBI had questioned Warsame and a younger brother in recent years. In August 2014, the family was concerned enough to send the two teens to Chicago to live with their father for a time. Warsame returned to Minnesota in June.

Warsame and his family have been on the FBI’s radar for years:

Of the 9 others from the area arrested, “Three of them have pleaded guilty, five will head to trial next year, and one — Abdi Nur — is believed to have made it to Syria.”

Wonderful.
