Authorities Arrest Texas Man With Potential Ties to Neo-Nazi Terrorist Group
A suspect with potential ties to a terrorist organization has been charged with a gun crime after an FBI investigation.
Twenty-three-year-old Aiden Bruce-Umbaugh (above) was charged with possession of a firearm by an unlawful user of a controlled substance.
According to KAMC News, Bruce-Umbaugh was originally arrested after local law enforcement in Post conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle he was a passenger in. Law enforcement allegedly discovered an AR-15, two AK-47s, a 9mm pistol, and at least 1,500 rounds of ammunition in the vehicle, along with marijuana and around two grams of THC oil.
The driver of the vehicle was Kaleb Cole, which KAMC News reports is the same name of the leader of the AtomWaffen Division's Washington State Cell based on a Daily Beast article.
Bruce-Umbaugh is also believed to be a member of the AtomWaffen Division, a neo-Nazi hate group.
Propaganda videos admitted into evidence depict members of the AtomWaffen Division at self-described "hate camps" practicing hand-to-hand combat and shooting firearms.
If convicted, Bruce-Umbaugh faces up to 10 years in federal prison.
