Arizona Man Charged In Nazi Threat Plot To Remain Jailed


An Arizona man will remain jailed on a charge that he and other neo-Nazis organized a harassment campaign a month ago to mail or post threatening messages at the homes of journalists and anti-hate advocates.

Magistrate Judge John Boyle ruled Monday that Johnny Roman Garza of Queen Creek will not be released from custody.

The judge ruled a week after his arrest and said he poses a danger to the community.

The judge said officers found a bulletproof vest at Garza’s home.

Garza is accused of gluing a poster at the home of an editor for Arizona Jewish Life magazine.

Garza’s attorney said his client was remorseful.
