The pair, who were also known as Yusuf Abdulhaqq and Abdul Wali, are also accused of furnishing the informant with several cell phones that they believed would be used to detonate explosive devices. The pair were taken into custody in Lake County on Wednesday without incident, and charged with conspiring to knowingly provide and attempting to provide material support and resources to ISIS.
