A Facebook post showed a man igniting and throwing a Molotov cocktail. Surveillance cameras from the police station recorded what appears to be the same man lighting other incendiary devices.

In some pictures he is seen with another man in a hoodie. According to the arrest document a woman contacted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms and identified Dylan Robinson of Brainerd Minnesota as the man in the white shirt with black stripes.

His cell phone was tracked to Breckenridge. There he was arrested Sunday in the parking lot of a recreation center. Breckenridge police assisted the federal agents. An examination of Robinson’s phone revealed he had not only been at the Minneapolis police precinct on the night of the fire, but posted selfie pictures to Snapchat.

During a court appearance on Tuesday, Robinson was asked if he understood the charges against him. He replied, “Yes, but…”

Federal Magistrate Reid Neureiter cut him off at that point and advised him to talk with his attorney. He is scheduled to be in court for a detention hearing on Friday.
