Seattle police have seized a cache of weapons from a suspected leader of the notorious neo-Nazi Atomwaffen Division whose members have boasted of preparing for a “race war” in America.
Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes told NBC Seattle affiliate KING-TV that he believes the action “prevented a massacre.”
Kaleb James Cole, 24, who is believed to be the leader of the Washington state cell of Atomwaffen, was labeled an “extreme risk” in a court order that allowed police to seize the weapons under the state’s “red-flag” law. The statute allows law enforcement to remove guns from people believed to be a threat. Cole, who was not arrested nor charged with any crime, is now prohibited from owning guns for a year under the Extreme Risk Protection Order obtained against him.
“This is a hate-filled human being, but unfortunately one who possesses really alarming numbers of weapons,” Holmes told KING-TV.
Police seized five military-style assault rifles, a shotgun, three semiautomatic handguns and other gun components, according to officials.
