The Federal Bureau of Investigation has arrested the five adult residents of a New Mexico compound where law enforcement found children dressed in rags and living in squalid conditions, authorities announced Friday. KRWG reports that the Bureau charged the five adults—40-year-old Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 37-year-old Hujrah Wahhaj, 35-year-old Subhanah Wahhaj, 35-year-old Jany Leveille, and 40-year-old Lucas Morton—with violations of “federal firearms and conspiracy laws.” Specifically, it charges Leveille with being an Haitian undocumented immigrant “unlawfully in possession of firearms and ammunition.” Authorities also charged the four others with aiding, abetting and conspiring with Leveille to commit the offense. Law enforcement found “at least eleven firearms and a large quantity of ammunition” from Georgia and Alabama during a search of the compound in August. Leville faces up to 10 years in prison and deportation, while the four others face up to 15 years in prison. This comes after law enforcement discovered the body of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj's three-year-old son on the compound, and prosecutors say that the children were training to be school shooters. New Mexico judges dismissed the child abuse charges filed against the five adults because the state did not obtain a preliminary hearing within the 10-day mandatory window.
