    First Bundy Oregon Militia Member Arrested

    Housing units are seen at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon, January 4, 2016. The leaders of a group of self-styled militiamen who took over a U.S. wildlife refuge headquarters over the weekend said on Monday they had acted to protest the federal government's role in governing wild lands. Ammon Bundy, a leader of the group, told reporters outside the occupied facility on Monday that his group had named itself "Citizens for Constitutional Freedom" and was trying to restore individual rights. Bundy and law enforcement officials declined to say how many people were occupying the refuge headquarters.

The Crescent, Oregon, resident has been charged with theft of two federal vehicles—both of which have reportedly been impounded. Mendenbach has previously been cited as a member of the Oregon militia.
