Wesley Martines was arrested after officials found weapons and writing in his car that said he wants to wipe out Blacks, Hispanics, and Jewish people. As reported by CNN, a local business owner alerted officials that someone was in the area peeking into cars and looking into a shed.  

According to a Santa Clara County District Attorney Office statement, officers located assault-style rifles, a handgun, a pipe bomb, ammunition, and body armor. Officers also located a journal that contained a plan to “to go [to a] sporting goods store, dress up as an employee and tie everybody up.” 

Martines has been charged with possession of assault weapons, multiple silencers, drugs, and the makings of a pipe bomb, according to the district attorney’s statement. He is being held with a $300,000 bail. Once police spoke with Marines, his tone was calm and relaxed, claiming that there was no ill-intent.  

“We definitely feel a crisis was averted,” Ian White Campbell Police Capt. reported to CNN.” “There was a significant threat to the public.”
