The FBI raided the home of Jordan Jereb, the white supremacist who claimed the alleged Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz was associated with his white nationalist group.

Shortly after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where 17 people died, Jereb claimed Cruz had done paramilitary training with the small white supremacist group he leads in Florida.

The press reported his comments before Jereb retracted them.


On Wednesday, several federal and state law enforcement agents showed up at the house owned by Jereb’s mother in Tallahassee, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

Officials removed bagged items of evidence from the house, according to the paper.

Jereb was also taken away in handcuffs. The paper reported he was arrested for violating his probation. Jereb is on probation after threatening a member of Florida Gov. Rick Scott's (R) staff in 2016.

The arrest comes more than a month after the Florida school shooting.

Cruz has been indicted on 34 counts of premeditated and attempted murder. A Florida prosecutor has said the state will seek the death penalty for Cruz.
