DeMuth lawyers want warrant suppressed

Attorneys for a Minneapolis man charged in connection with a 2004 break-in at Spence Labs and Seashore Hall have filed a motion to suppress an affidavit for a search warrant, according to court documents.

Scott DeMuth, 22, is charged with conspiracy.

On Nov. 14, 2004, four masked individuals broke into the two facilities and caused around $450,000 in damage. The Animal Liberation Front has claimed responsibility for the break-in.

The affidavit states that an e-mail from the Animal Liberation Front claiming responsibility for the break-in — sent to various media outlets days after the incident — was sent from computers in the UI’s Main and Law Libraries. When officials searched DeMuth’s Minneapolis home, they found throwing knives, smoke bombs, fireworks, a gas mask, and DeMuth’s diary.

“It’s almost been a year since Iowa … I am assuming I am just considered an ‘associate’ enough to only act as a witness,” he wrote in his diary, according to the documents.
