The FBI has arrested the founder of a Black Lives Matter group in Atlanta for allegedly spending around $200,000 in donations for personal use.
The story: FBI agents arrested 32-year-old Sir Maejor Page, also known as Tyree Conyers-Page, in Toledo, Ohio on Friday. He was charged with one count of wire fraud and two counts of money laundering and released on a $10,000 unsecured bond after appearing before a judge via video.
Under the bond, Page is barred from using Facebook, fundraising, or opening new bank accounts or lines of credit, without asking for permission first.
In detail: The bureau said that Page operated a Facebook page called “Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta.” He created the non-profit and registered it back in 2016 but it lost its charity tax exemption after the group failed to file the required paperwork. Losing its tax-exempt status as a charity meant that the group could no longer solicit donations.
