Defendants arrested during raids over the weekend in Lenawee and Washtenaw counties linked to a Christian-militia group in the area are expected to make appearances in court today in Detroit.

Gina Balaya, public information officer for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Michigan’s Eastern District, said those arrested in the raids involving the group Hutaree are scheduled to begin appearing at 10 a.m. before U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Donald A. Scheer.

Balaya could not confirm this morning how many arrests were made during the raids in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio [2].

FBI spokesman Scott Wilson in Cleveland said agents arrested two people Saturday after raids in two Ohio towns. A third arrest made in northeast Illinois stemmed from a raid in northwest Indiana. The arrests are part of an ongoing investigation led by the FBI in Michigan, according to a statement from agents in Illinois.
