Dowd wasn’t arrested for anything he might have done while on the refuge, according to a spokesman for federal and local law enforcement in Harney County.
The article goes on to say Dowd was seen about three weeks ago carrying a rifle and guarding the main entrance to the refuge. He also spent time inside the occupied refuge headquarters.
Dowd is reportedly accused of stealing a firearm worth about $600 from a 65-year-old man last May in Riley County. While KMAN did not find that arrest in our records, Brandon Dowd does show up on the Pottawatomie County Court docket for unspecified charges in March of 2013.
