An 18-year-old, right-wing, Ohio man was busted with 10,000 rounds of ammo and camouflage garb, cops say


Justin Olsen is facing a charge of threatening to assault a federal law enforcement officer.

A Boardman, Ohio, man who was armed to the teeth is facing charges for threatening federal law enforcement officers.

Justin Olsen, 18, was arrested last week, after making online threats against Feds and Planned Parenthood clinics, according to WKBN in Ohio. When authorities searched the suspect’s home, where he lives with his father, they reportedly recovered more than two dozen guns and 10,000 rounds of ammunition.

Law enforcement agents also found a machete and camouflage clothes in Olsen’s car. The arrest came three-days after a gunman in Dayton killed nine people and injured 27 more during a 32-second shooting spree on a crowded street.

The right-wing teen got the attention of investigators in July after posting threats on a website called iFunny, where he used the pseudonym Army of Christ and had roughly 5,000 followers before his account was deactivated. During an online discussion about the FBI’s 1993 siege of a cult compound in Waco, Texas, that left four federal agents and 75 members of the Branch Davidian church dead, Olsen wrote, “In conclusion, shoot every federal agent on sight.”

Officers who searched Olsen’s home reportedly collected whatever electronic devices and hate-related literature they came across. The suspect allegedly claimed his online comments were “a joke.”

According to WKBN, authorities were motivated to move in on Olsen quickly following the Aug. 4 mass shooting in Dayton and the previous day’s gun massacre in El Paso, Texas, which killed 22 people.

“The reality is that the threat that’s made here, the direct threat that’s made to federal law enforcement, is something that would have been taken seriously under any circumstances,” federal prosecutor Justin Herdman reportedly said.

Olsen graduated from high school in June. He’s now in police custody and will be in court Friday.
