Ohio white nationalist, anti-Semite arrested for threatening to shoot up Jewish community center, police say

An Ohio man has been arrested for making threats toward a local Jewish community center in New Middletown.

James Reardon Jr., 20, has been charged with telecommunications harassment and aggravated menacing and is being held in the Mahoning County Jail on $250,000 bond with a court hearing planned for Monday morning.

On Friday, the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force raided Reardon’s house and seized a cache of weapons and ammunition, including dozens of round of ammo, multiple semi-automatic weapons, a gas mask and bulletproof armor.

“Grateful for the work of the FBI, local law enforcement and our community partners in the Youngstown Jewish community. We will continue to employ all our resources to stop the spread of white nationalism and violent extremism,” the Anti-Defamation League in Cleveland tweeted.

Police initially became aware of Reardon on July 11 when he posted a video on Instagram of a man shooting a semi-automatic rifle with sirens and screams in the background. He tagged the Jewish Community Center of Youngstown in the post.

“That kicked off an intense investigation, a very rapidly evolving investigation, because of the way the world is,” New Middletown Police Chief Vince D’Egidio told Youngstown ABC affiliate WYTV.

UPS worker killed in shootout identified as 27-year-old father of two girls

Published

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Frank Ordonez, 27, has been identified as the UPS driver who was killed in a shootout after his truck was hijacked on Thursday.

Ordonez was identified by his stepfather Friday morning as Frank Ordonez, a father to two young daughters.

Coral Gables police said the ordeal began with a robbery just after 4 p.m. at Regent Jewelers at 386 Miracle Mile. A woman was shot in the head at the jewelry store, though her condition wasn’t immediately clear, Miami’s WPLG-TV reported.

The two robbers reportedly sped away from the scene of the crime, ditched their initial getaway car and then jumped into a nearby UPS truck, commandeering the delivery vehicle and holding the driver hostage.

The civilian, who was also killed, was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, dying in an idling car that just happened to be in the vicinity when the shootout occurred. According to WSVN, the bystander has been identified as 70-year-old Richard Cutshaw.

Both of the robbery suspects were also killed in the melee. The FBI identified them on Friday as Lamar Alexander, 41, and Ronnie Jerome Hill, 41, both of Miami-Dade County.

As the UPS truck cruised along Miramar Parkway, about 24 miles north of Coral Gables, dozens of police cars raced to pursue it. Meanwhile, rush-hour traffic in the area largely came to a standstill as terrified drivers waited for the brazen crooks and cops to pass.  Read More Here

The electronic billboard on Interstate 170 read “Make the Gospel great again” and “The Word became flesh…” — the opening to John 1:14, which has some drivers believing that whoever paid for the advertisement, which DDI has not revealed, was equating Trump to Jesus Christ. Read More Here
