Two Black Lives Matter supporters in Chicago were arrested by the FBI on Wednesday for conspiring to support ISIS by plotting to send a recruit and cell phone detonators to the terrorist organization.

Federal officials arrested Edward Schimenti and Joseph Jones, both 35, in the early morning hours of Wednesday after a 19-month investigation involving four federal agents and a fifth person cooperating with the bust.

It began in September 2015 when Jones went down to the Zion Police Department for an interview about a murdered friend. There, he was approached by an undercover FBI agent who had been investigating him since discovering radical social media entries he had posted supporting terrorist activity along with pictures of Jones and Schimenti with an ISIS flag at Illinois Beach State Park in Zion
