130117-Richard-Schmidt-8p (1)Department of Justice photo: Richard Schmidt, Federal prosecutors have charged an ex-felon with illegally possessing 18 firearms, body armor and 40,000 rounds of ammunition.  An indictment in federal court in Toledo Wednesday also alleges that Richard Schmidt illegally trafficked in counterfeit clothing marked with brand names such as the National Football League, Nike and Reebok. The indictment against the 47-year-old Schmidt says he was convicted of manslaughter in Lucas County court in 1990 and so was not permitted to own guns.

Feds investigate how suspected white supremacist — a felon — obtained arsenal

Federal agents are trying to determine how a suspected Ohio white supremacist with a felony conviction for manslaughter acquired a cache of 18 assault weapons and other firearms, along with high-capacity magazines and more than 40,000 rounds of ammunition, according to federal law enforcement officials and court documents reviewed by NBC News.

 

The storehouse of weapons was discovered late last  month when FBI agents arrested Richard Schmidt,  47, the owner of a Bowling Green sporting goods store called Spindletop Sports Zone,  on charges of  marketing counterfeit goods — such as football jerseys with NFL logos — from China.

 

Although initially portrayed as a probe into the thriving international market for counterfeit clothing, the case took a surprising turn this week when the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cleveland unsealed search warrants and an indictment also charging Schmidt with illegal possession of firearms.

 

According to the documents, FBI agents who searched Schmidt’s sporting goods store and four trailers behind it, found a  stash of weapons that included AR-15 assault rifles, Ruger and Sig Sauer semi-automatic pistols,  bulletproof  body armor and high-capacity magazines as well as ammunition.

 

The agents also discovered evidence of Schmidt’s ties to the neo-Nazi movement, documents show. Among the evidence seized, according to search warrants, was a video of a national convention of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement; bumper stickers of the National Alliance party, another neo-Nazi group; a “Jewish 500” list — a supposed roster of Jewish-owned businesses — and paraphernalia from the “Waffen SS,” Adolph Hitler’s Nazi military force in Germany from the early 1930s through World War II, according to the search warrants.

 

A federal law enforcement official, who spoke with NBC News on condition of anonymity, said that FBI counterterrorism agents involved in the  case  had picked up evidence that Schmidt  may have been planning attacks against Jewish and civil rights groups in the Detroit area. “This is an active investigation,” said another federal law enforcement official when asked if Schmidt was believed to have been working with any others in the neo-Nazi movement.

 

In the indictment unsealed this week, Schmidt was charged with three counts of illegal possession of firearms, ammunition and body armor and one count of trafficking in counterfeit goods.

 

Schmidt’s lawyer, federal public defender Andy Hart, did not respond to a request for comment.

“The indictment said guns seized from Schmidt included pistols, shotguns and assault rifles.  An FBI affidavit filed in December says at least seven high-capacity ammunition magazines were found inside Schmidt’s sports memorabilia store in Bowling Green.”

  1. Did this asshole make bail so he can accomplish his goal. He is a horror story waiting to happen.

  2. We must help people to understand we are not in need of guns. We have a well regulated militia and the rest of these yahoos are what we need to be afraid of!

    Take a good look, America. This is the face of a terrorist. Not in Iraq. Not in Iran. But right here in your own backyard!! You probably know him. Look hard. You’ve seen him many times.

    “18 firearms, body armor and 40,000 rounds of ammunition”

    ASSWIPE!!! I hope they throw the book at him. Fool had body armor. I don’t expect that he planned to go for a swim with it on. Thanks, Jueseppi.
