AWAITING TRIAL

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/
