Stockton man arrested by FBI has an extreme hatred for federal government
(KUTV) Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigations have taken a Stockton, Utah man into custody and searched his home.
It appears Bill Keebler was arrested in Nephi, and FBI agents will not say why he is in custody.
We did some digging and found a man, with an extreme dislike of the federal government and, it appears, he was recruiting to put together a militia of some kind.
Keebler has a prolific online social media presence. On his personal Facebook page he is friends, almost exclusively, with people and groups with a strong hatred for the federal government.
Keebler is also friends with the Finnicum and Bundy families, the people behind the seizure of a wildlife refuge in Oregon in January. Keebler also brags about his friendship with LaVoy Finicum, and said he provided security for him. The FBI refused to answer our questions about his arrest.
