    DeLemus of Rochester, N.H. was arrested on allegations that he organized and led armed patrols and security checkpoints for several weeks after a tense armed confrontation in April 2014 near Cliven Bundy's melon farm and cattle ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada.

    Twelve people were arrested Thursday in connection with an armed protest on the Bundy ranch in Nevada in 2014, NBC News reported.

    The arrests include two more of Cliven Bundy’s sons — Melvin and David Bundy — and Gerald DeLemus, a New Hampshire man linked to Donald Trump’s campaign. Trump’s campaign did not respond to questions from NBC News about DeLemus’ arrest.

    Federal agents who seized Bundy's cattle over unpaid grazing fees backed off after being confronted with armed protesters and snipers on Aug. 12, 2014.

    A federal grand jury in Nevada indicted 14 people in all on charges of conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States and other counts, federal prosecutors said. Two of those indicted Thursday were already in custody in Oregon.
