CARSON, N.D. (AP) — Two white supremacists were charged with terrorizing after they carried guns in the small North Dakota town they want to turn into a white enclave.

Grant County authorities arrested 62-year-old Craig Cobb and 29-year-old Kynan Dutton on Saturday after residents of Leith called for help, saying the two men were threatening them with guns.

Grant County authorities say Cobb and Dutton were charged with four counts of felony terrorizing and will appear in court Monday afternoon.

Cobb told The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/17hmCkd) the group started armed patrols because they're being harassed.

Cobb bought up property in Leith in hopes of attracting more white supremacists there and taking over the town's government. Dutton is among the first to join Cobb in Leith, about 75 miles southwest of Bismarck.
