An Ohio man was arrested on Saturday for allegedly threatening to attack a local Jewish community center, WYTV reported.
James Patrick Reardon, 20, was arrested after he allegedly posted a video of a man shooting a rifle on Instagram on July 11, the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation said in a statement. Under the post, a caption said, “Police identified the Youngstown Jewish Family Community shooter as local white nationalist Seamus O’Rearedon,” and the Jewish Community Center of Youngstown was tagged on the post.
Police connected the account to Reardon and discovered that his account had posted racist slurs and other prejudiced comments, the TV station reported.
After receiving a warrant, the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force raided Reardon’s home and confiscated several semi-automatic weapons, dozens of rounds of ammunition, bulletproof armor and a gas mask. Anti-Semitic and white nationalist propaganda was discovered at the scene.
