Malheur occupier says they have booby traps near camp

BURNS, Ore. (KOIN) — One of the four remaining occupiers at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon was back online Sunday after a week without communication.

David Fry posted several videos on YouTube Sunday, claiming the FBI blocked his phone and he found a way around the block.

“The FBI was mad and throwing fits because I’m here posting You Tube videos. They’re like, David, you promised not to post anything on social medial, well, guess what FBI? That was before you shut my phone off. My phone was still good and I did promise to not post anything on social media. But you guys shut my phone off and disabled all our communications,” Fry said in one of the videos.

Fry also criticized whoever removed LaVoy Finicum’s memorial over the weekend, calling them “scum bags with no morals.”

Fry, Jeff Banta and Sandy and Sean Anderson are the remaining protesters at the refuge. They were all indicted on federal charges, along with 12 others. Fry had something to say about that.

“Piss off, shove your charges where the sun don’t shine! Have a good day.”

In one video, Fry showed a large collection of empty water and soda bottles on the ground, calling them booby traps to protect them from the FBI “charging in.”
