Judge re­scinds re­lease or­der for self-pro­claimed neo-Nazi

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

TAMPA | A fed­eral judge in Florida has re­versed his own or­der and will keep a self-pro­fessed neoNazi ac­cused of col­lect­ing bomb-mak­ing ma­te­ri­als in jail dur­ing le­gal pro­ceed­ings.

U.S. Mag­is­trate Judge Thomas McCoun III on Wed­nes­day va­cated his pre­vi­ous or­der that set terms of re­lease for 21-year-old Bran­don Russell.

Mr. Russell was ar­rested last month af­ter author­i­ties in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­der of two of his room­mates by a third room­mate found ex­plo­sives and other ma­te­ri­als con­sis­tent with bomb-mak­ing in his Tampa apart­ment.

Judge McCoun said the gov­ern­ment proved Mr. Russell would pose a dan­ger af­ter pre­sent­ing ev­i­dence, in­clud­ing two ri­fles and hun­dreds of rounds of am­mu­ni­tion found in Mr. Russell’s car dur­ing his ar­rest.

Mr. Russell’s room­mate, Devon Arthurs, faces two mur­der charges for slay­ing two other room­mates.
