'Possible' white supremacist arrested in New Jersey with gun cache
TRENTON, NJ - Police in New Jersey arrested a suspected white supremacist who was wearing combat gear and toting numerous firearms on Sunday afternoon.
42-year-old Bruce Post was taken to police headquarters and charged with first degree unlawful possession of weapons along with other weapons-related charges. Charges are still pending for a second 39-year-old man who was also taken into custody.
A police task force was combing the woods Sunday in a New Jersey wildlife management area when they came across a Hyundai Tucson parked on the side of the road. Inside the vehicle, officers located a large cache of firearms including an AK-47, a Walther P38 9mm handgun, eight 30-round high-capacity magazines, one 100-round drum magazine and other assorted ammunition.
Officers located Post and the second man, acting suspiciously, about 100 yards away from the vehicle. Both were wearing combat gear.
"Based on the suspicious nature of the entire encounter, a thorough K-9 and foot search was conducted in the area the subjects were located," said an officer at the scene.
While in custody, police said Post “gave indications of possible white-supremacist involvement.”
Post was booked into the Ocean County Jail in Toms River, New Jersey, on $400,000 bond. His vehicle was impounded for further processing.
