A man arrested on allegations of plotting a mass shooting at a Walmart in Texas had a stockpile of guns, ammunition and racist and extremist materials in his home. 

Coleman Thomas Blevins, 28, of Kerrville, Tex, has been charged with making a “terroristic threat to create public fear of serious bodily injury,” the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Sunday.

Authorities intercepted a message from Blevins that said he planned to shoot up a Walmart. 

During the investigation, the sheriff’s office made contact with Blevins and confirmed he was affiliated and networking with “extremist ideologies” and was capable of “following through with the threat.”

“Our investigators did outstanding work in this case, and possibly saved many lives,” Sheriff Larry Leitha said in the news release. “The plot interrupted in this case is unthinkable.”

Among the items found in Blevins’ home were flags depicting the swastika and other Nazi symbols and extremist books that advocated neo-Nazi ideas. 

“Firearms, ammunition, electronic evidence, concentrated THC, and radical ideology paraphernalia, including books, flags, and handwritten documents” were also seized, cops said.

An armed Missouri man who stopped a cross-country Amtrak train in southwest Nebraska has ties to white supremacists and advocated “killing black people,” new court documents show.

Taylor Michael Wilson, 26, of St. Charles, has been charged with terrorism and other violent-related crimes in U.S. district Court in Lincoln, Nebraska, the Lincoln Journal Star reports

FBI Special Agent Monte Czaplewski said there’s sufficient evidence to show that Wilson’s electronic devices and firearms “have been used for or obtained in anticipation of engaging in or planning to engage in criminal offenses against the United States.”

Newly unsealed court records indicate agents found videos and PDF files on Wilson’s phone that suggest ties to white supremacy. Also found on the phone was a book about how to kill people.

An acquaintance of suspect told the FBI that Wilson had joined a neo-Nazi group. Another informant told the FBI that Wilson supported “killing black people.”

Arrested Dec. 23, Wilson is now in federal custody.

The FBI paid $40,000 to an undercover informant who infiltrated a neo-Nazi group in Florida and secretly photographed white supremacists, some of whom were arrested last spring, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The informant, Jason Hall, helped determine that the members of American Front were receiving paramilitary training to prepare for an inevitable race war, the Sentinel reported, citing records.

Hall began working as an informant to work off criminal charges and helped the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI’s task force.

The investigation into the neo-Nazi group led to the arrest of 14 people. One has pleaded guilty, while the others are awaiting trial, according to the Sentinel.

WASHINGTON — The self-proclaimed commander of a Neo Nazi group in Roanoke, Va., was convicted on Friday in federal court in Virginia  of intimidating individuals by threatening them and posting some of their names, addresses, phone numbers and other personal information on  a Neo-Nazi website, authorities said.

From 2006 to 2008, William A. “Bill” White of the neo-Nazi group American National Socialist Workers Party,  went after a bank employee over a financial dispute and others involved in a federal  anti-discriminatory housing lawsuit, authorities charged.

“These communications included late night telephone calls to the victims’ homes, during which he would identify himself as the leader of a white supremacist group; emails to the victims in which he would make threatening statements; and posting the victims’ names, addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information on neo-Nazi Web sites, sometimes accompanied by language advocating the murder of the targeted victim,” the Justice Department said in a press release.

He was also convicted of  threatening a human rights lawyer from Canada and a university administrator responsible for implementing a diversity program, the Justice Department said.
