Kevin Johnson M42382, Vandalia
Correctional Center, P.O. Box 500, Vandalia,
IL 62471. Kevin and Tyler were pulled over
late at night in Roanoke, Illinois in what
appears to be a routine traffic stop. When
they refused consent to a search of the vehicle,
the police searched the vehicle anyway. Inside,
police allege they found bolt cutters, wire
cutters, muriatic acid, ski masks, and cammo
clothing. Kevin Olliff and Tyler Lang were
subsequently arrested for “possession
of burglary tools.” Their history as
activists appears to be the sole basis for
the charges. http://supportkevinandtyler.com/
