The arrest affidavit states the arrests were based on evidence from an informant who managed to infiltrate the neo-Nazi organization, according to Yahoo. The affidavit made it clear that the group was armed and potentially dangerous.
“The American Front (AF) is a military-styled, anti-Semitic, white supremacist, skinhead organization and is known as a domestic terrorist organization,” the affidavit said. The group’s leader, 39-year-old Marcus Faella, had stated his “intent… to kill Jews, immigrants and other minorities.”
Faella owned and operated a compound located 11 miles from Disney World.
There he conducted firearms, explosives and tactical training for AF members and other neo-Nazi groups. Two pit bull dogs, a barbed-wire fence and three military-style trenches protected the compound from would-be intruders.
The affidavit said Faella believed “the race war will take place within the next few years based on current world events.”
