Deputies intercepted a message from Blevins on May 27 saying he was planning to “proceed with a mass shooting”, according to the sheriff’s office.
Blevins made a specific threat against Walmart, according to the sheriff’s office, which led to his arrest. Following his arrest, deputies searched Blevins’ home and seized firearms, ammunition, electronic evidence, concentrated THC, and radical ideology paraphernalia including books, flags, and handwritten documents.
“After the arrest, a search warrant for Mr. Blevins’ residence in the 200 block of Spence St was executed. In that warrant service, firearms, ammunition, electronic evidence, concentrated THC, and radical ideology paraphernalia, including books, flags, and handwritten documents were seized. Mr. Blevins is currently on active felony probation and is prohibited from possessing firearms,” the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office said in the press release.
A photo posted by the sheriff’s office, which can be seen above, shows the items that were seized from Blevins’ home. The flags seen in the photos include, from left to right, a Neo-Nazi astany black sun flag sonnenrad banner, a confederate flag, the flag of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Falange Flag, a symbol of the fascist Falangist party of Spanish General Francisco Franco. Another flag on the table is the calvary cross version of the Russian Christian Orthodox symbol.
Along with a rifle, handgun, ammunition, a laptop and a T-shirt with the image of a syringe, several books are laid out on the table, including a copy of the Qu’ran and the white supremacist novel The Turner Diaries. The 1978 nove depicts a “group of white supremacists attacks the Capitol in an effort to overthrow the U.S. government. Dozens are killed in the assault, including members of Congress and their staffers.”
These ‘Confederate Imperialist’ are serious. They will spare none to maintain the illusion that power doesn’t need to be justified by the will of the governed. #ColemanBlevins #InsurrectionHasConsequences #insurrection https://t.co/C4eNVr8Nim
