Ty Garbin is 25 years old as of 2021.
The men were arrested on Oct. 8 after the FBI and Michigan State Police raided several homes. Ty Garbin’s guilty plea is a major catch for prosecutors, only about four months after arrests were made. His testimony would strengthen the government’s case against the others and back up evidence collected by informants and undercover agents.
Garbin appeared in federal court in Grand Rapids a few hours after prosecutors filed a plea agreement that is loaded with details about the operation and his pledge to fully cooperate with investigators. There is no agreement on his sentencing.
Trail and Investigation
By September, however, investigators say the plan began to unravel after the FBI informant introduced an undercover agent into the group, who posed as an explosives expert. The plea deal notes that in one Sept. 19 chat, Fox told Garbin he was preparing the basement of a vacuum cleaner supply shop as a training centre to prepare to kidnap Whitmer, adding that he had a Taser and zip ties “which would be good for ‘neutralizing’ the governor.”
The FBI in October said it broke up a plot to kidnap Whitmer, a Democrat, by anti-government extremists upset over the coronavirus restrictions she imposed in Michigan. Six people were charged in federal court while eight others were charged in state court with aiding the alleged scheme.
In the plea agreement, Garbin, 25, of Hartland, admitted to more than six pages of stunning allegations. He said he and others trained with weapons in Munith, Michigan, and Cambria, Wisconsin, last summer and “discussed the plan to storm the Capitol and kidnap the governor.”
The plot, he said, eventually switched to Whitmer’s second home in Antrim County.
