A 19-year-old man indicted for making thre-atening posts and conducting internet searches related to k!lling Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
At the end of May, investigators in Kannapolis found an unused van at a bank with an AR-15-style r!fle, a handgun, ammunition, and expl-osive materials, according to court documents retrieved by ABC-affiliate WSOC.
Employees at the bank asked the Kannapolis Police Department to tow the van.
Investigators found items such as $509,000 in cash, six more g*ns, books about making bo*bs and improvised we*pons, and drawings of swastikas and planes cr-ashing into buildings, documents revealed.
Officials said Alexander Hillel Treisman arrived at the bank looking for the van, to no avail. Authorities searched the car that Treisman arrived in and found two additional g*ns and three driver’s licenses in his wallet, from the states of California, Florida, and Washington.
Treisman was also carrying a conc-ealed we*pon, for which he was arre-sted. After his arr-est, Kannapolis police contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Investigators searched Treisman’s electronic devices and accounts; officials said they found video and images of child po*nography content.
Between March and May, internet searches show that he looked up, “information about Joe Biden’s home address, state g*n laws, r!fle parts, and night vision goggles,” according to court documents. The documents also say Treisman posted a meme about k!lling Biden and traveled to a Wendy’s near Biden’s home after buying a r!fle in New Hampshire.
As of Thursday, Treisman is only facing child por*ography-related cha*ges, but in an order earlier this month, a judge cited the above evidence for reasons why he should remain in police cu*tody.
