QAnon Believer Teamed Up With Conspiracy Theorists to Plot Kidnapping, Police Say - 2020-01-04
Colorado mother Cynthia Abcug became an unlikely star on the fringe right last year thanks to a battle with her state's child-welfare department over custody of her son, which became a cause célèbre among believers of the bizarre pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory.
But a recently unsealed arrest warrant alleges that Abcug had bigger plans, working with other armed QAnon believers to plan a kidnapping.
Montana police arrested Abcug in Kalispell, Montana, on Dec. 30, on a felony conspiracy to commit kidnapping arrest warrant issued in Colorado. Abcug had allegedly teamed up with other QAnon believers to carry out the kidnapping, according to witness statements to police.
