12th White Supremacist Arrested In Florida Terrorism Probe

An anonymous tip led authorities late Monday to the arrest of a 12th member of the white supremacist group American Front, which was broken up last week in Florida as part of a domestic terrorism investigation.

According to the Florida Today newspaper, police arrested Dylan Rettenmaier without any problems at a gas station in Melbourne, Fla., after getting a tip he was there. Rettenmaier, 25, reportedly knew there was a warrant for his arrest and had been camping out near the gas station.

Members of the Florida chapter of American Front were accused of preparing for what they believed was a coming race war by stockpiling weapons, experimenting with the creation of the toxin known as ricin and plotting some sort of “disturbance” on Orlando City Hall.
