The church said "it filled the truck with a thousand dollars worth of food, band aids and fire extinguishers.”

According to local news station WKOW, a church in Milwaukee that sent a U-Haul truck filled with supplies and food for protesters in Kenosha says authorities seized the truck and arrested the two people inside.

  • The report states that “the Zao MKE Church says it filled the truck with a thousand dollars worth of food, band aids and fire extinguishers.”
  • Law enforcement officials intercepted the truck in Kenosha on Wednesday, ABC 27 reported, “and church leaders say they haven't been given an explanation.”

"I have no idea how the police could interpret water, Gatorade, bags of chips and fire extinguishers as a threat. And the fact that even after seeing all of that they confiscated it and continued to proceed to arrest the driver and passenger is absolutely beyond me," said Rev. Jonah Overton.

  • The Kenosha police chief reportedly said he was unaware of the incident.
