Nicholas Wesley Rose, 26, of Irvine, California, has been charged by police for allegedly creating a “kill list” of local Jews.
Rose appeared to be in the preparatory stages of an antisemitic terrorist attack and was also found in position of weapons and ammunition. Local prosecutors said that, as well as the “kill list” he had also penned an article called “killing my first Jew”. Police were alerted by a family member, after Rose described his desire to kill Jews to them.
Police allegedly found antisemitic pamphlets in his house.
As well as details of a local Synagogue, police also found details of two Eastern Orthodox churches.
Rose will appear on April 27 charged with a string of hate crimes, and is being held on $500,000 bail.
