Seattle, WA- Minnesota Grand Jury Subpoena Delivered
At approximately 8:45 a.m. on Monday, August 20th, 2007, two law enforcement officials woke me by knocking on my apartment front door in Seattle, Washington. I opened the door and one of them referred to me as "Tony", the nickname commonly used to refer to me by people I know. This person nearest to my doorstep, I would later discover after asking him for his business card, was Erik Swanson, Police Sergeant, Investigations, Joint Terrorism Task Force, University of Minnesota Police, Twin Cities Campus. He said he wanted to come inside and talk with me about some things. I asked them if they had a warrant. Officer Swanson said "no". I told them no comment and began to shut my door. Officer Swanson then told me he first needed give me some documents. He asked again if they could come inside. I told them "no". He gave me a federal "Subpoena To Testify Before Grand Jury" on September 6, 2007 at 9 a.m. at the "308 U.S. Courthouse" in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
After he gave me the subpoena he showed me a couple color copy photos of some type of vehicle or machine. The photos were dark and unclear and I couldn't really tell what exactly he was trying to show me or why. Then Officer Swanson told me that I knew what he was showing me and if I cooperate it'll be better for me. He mentioned an Ian Wallet or Wallice who Officer Swanson said had been cooperating with them somehow (again, they did not say in regards to what). He told me they had also been speaking to one Kevin Tubbs and one Stanilsas Meyerhoff and said both had been talking to them-- again, about what they did not say and did not explain why any of this is relevant to me. The entire time they never actually told me what they were investigating or why I was being called to testify. Throughout the brief interaction I repeated "no comment" whenever appropriate.
