A man authorities said discussed attacking a Las Vegas synagogue has been indicted on a federal weapons charge, court records show.
Prosecutors allege that Climo had been communicating with members of a white supremacist group about plans to attack a local synagogue, an Anti-Defamation League office, and a downtown Las Vegas bar that Climo believed welcomed the LGBTQ community.
According to a criminal complaint, Climo also had discussed those plots with an undercover agent and informant.
A federal grand jury in Las Vegas on Wednesday charged him with possession of an unregistered firearm. He is accused of possessing destructive devices that were not registered to him in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.
Climo’s attorney did not respond to a request for comment.
An arraignment in the case is scheduled for next week.
