Since September 2022, a total of 5 Patriot Front members have now been placed on Idaho’s Wanted List. The 5 members include:

  • Graham Jones Whitson (32 y.o.) from Haslet, TX.
  • Connor Patrick Moran (24) from Watauga, TX.
  • Jared Michael Boyce (28) from Springville, UT.
  • James Julius Johnson (37) from Concrete, WA
  • Derek Joseph Smith (24) from Sioux Falls, SD.

In total, 31 Patriot Front have been charged with “Misdemeanor Conspiracy to Riot” after being interdicted by local law enforcement while riding in the back of a U-Haul van during last June’s Pride in the Park event.

It remains to be seen whether the remainder of the Patriot Front defendants will show up for their court date.
