Yohannes was arrested over the summer for allegedly providing false information when purchasing a pair of rifles last year. He is also accused of stealing his roommate's check card. It was Yohannes's roommates who tipped off police that the 20-year-old Ethiopian immigrant was stockpiling weapons and seemed obsessed with mass murder. His arrest came just months after the mass shootings at Virginia Tech.
