More Arrested in Fla Hate Crime, Conspiracy Case

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Three more people are in custody in central Florida following a multi-agency investigation into a militia-styled white supremacist group known as a domestic terrorist organization.
Authorities arrested 27-year-old Christopher Brooks, 21-year-old Dustin Perry and 23-year-old Richard Stockdale late Monday. Like seven others arrested late last week as part of a FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force operation, all three were charged with paramilitary training, attempt to shoot into an occupied dwelling and evidence of prejudices while committing offense, a first-degree felony.
The "prejudices" charge falls under Florida's hate crimes law.
Brooks and Stockdale were also charged with possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon. All three have bonds of more than $500,000. It was not immediately known if they are represented by an attorney.
