Thousands descended on the Third Precinct station, which was set ablaze after Minneapolis police abandoned the building.

Federal authorities on Tuesday charged a 23-year-old Brainerd-area man in connection with burning down the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct building amid rioting over the May 25 police killing of George Floyd.

Dylan Shakespeare Robinson, 23, made his first appearance in federal court in Colorado, two days after being arrested in Breckenridge, Colo., as he traveled west along Interstate 70.

Robinson - identified as having grown up in the Brainerd area and currently serving a probation sentence for drug possession - was recorded by security cameras tossing incendiary devices at the Third Precinct building the night it burned, according to a federal criminal complaint. A Facebook video also showed Robinson setting a fire just outside the first-floor stairwell on the building's west side, the complaint said.
