Ohio White Supremacist arrested for threats to Jewish Community Center

James Reardon Jr. of Struthers, Ohio will be arraigned today in Struthers Municipal Court on charges of telephone communication harassment and aggravated menacing.

Reardon, a self-proclaimed White Supremacist, attended the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017.

According to local affiliate, WYTV 33, “he was interviewed for a documentary and said that he was a white nationalist, he wanted to see a homeland only established for whites and that his parents did not agree with his opinions.

Police became aware of Reardon and started monitoring him after a video appeared on Instagram showing him shooting a semi-automatic rifle. The caption post read, “Police identified the Youngstown Jewish Family Community shooter as local white nationalist Seamus O’Rearedon.”

Reardon used the online moniker, I-R-A Seamus, and tagged the Jewish Community Center of Youngstown in the post.

The FBI Violent Crimes Task Force aided his home on Friday and found an arsenal of weapons and ammunition, including dozens of round of ammo, multiple semi-automatic weapons, a gas mask and bulletproof armor,” as well as white nationalist and anti-Semitic imagery.

Reardon was held on $250,000 bond. The FBI has not determined if they will pursue any federal charges.
