A man suspected of planning a mass shooting was arrested in Texas, according to the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO).
Coleman Thomas Blevins, 28, has made specific threats to target local Wal-Mart stores, KCSO said in a statement posted on Facebook on Sunday.
The sheriff’s office posted images of evidence believed to have been collected from Belvins’ apartment, showing a rifle with multiple magazines, a flag with the Nazi party symbol, and the Saudi Arabia flag. Books and handwritten Documents were also seized by the investigators.
The statement did not identify the type of message that warned authorities, but after intercepting it, KCSO has the ability of Belbin to track threats with the help of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). It was confirmed.
According to a statement, Belvins was arrested on a warrant of “a threat of terrorism that creates public fear of serious physical injury.”
Belvins is currently on probation for a felony and is banned from owning firearms. He was imprisoned in Kerr County Prison and remains intact.
According to the KCSO, the FBI or other federal authorities may seek federal charges in this case.
