Police Arrest Armed Man Connected with White Supremacist Groups
Man who spent time in prison for arson at an area high school could be headed back after he's caught with a gun and with numerous stolen items in the back of his car while getting a tattoo.
A white supremacist/Neo-Nazi who spent nearly a decade in prison for committing arson at Waterford High School is facing more charges after Greendale police officers caught him carrying a gun with hundreds of dollars worth of stolen goods in his car.
Shaun Everett Alexander, 27, of Genoa City, was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Friday with one count of felon in possession of a firearm. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison and $25,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Sunday, a Greendale police officer was looking for Alexander because he was wanted by multiple jurisdictions for theft complaints and a felony parole violation in connection to his 2010 release from prison for committing arson at the school. The officer also noted Alexander is connected with white supremacists and Neo-Nazis.
The officer went to a Milwaukee home where he suspected Alexander was staying and as he arrived, Alexander was walking out to get into a car. The officer stopped and tried to block the car, but Alexander backed into another car, drove away on the sidewalk and sped away from the officer.
The officer later called Alexander and pleaded with him to turn himself in, but he said he was driving in northern Chicago and would not turn himself in.
On Wednesday, the officer was tipped off that Alexander was at Atomic Tattoo, 3871 S. 27th St., so he called Milwaukee police in for backup and they went inside and found Alexander on a table getting a tattoo of a grenade. He was placed under arrested and officers found a semi-automatic handgun with a loaded magazine in the waistband of his pants.
Inside his car the officers found multiple bottles of cologne, trail cameras, two canisters of pepper spray, gun supplies, targets and night sights. Many of the items were later determined to be stolen from various stores.
Alexander told officers he got a pre-law degree while in prison and said the cops planted the gun on him, but then made the comment to it not being stolen. He then admitted to stealing the items found in his car, then began to laugh about an incident in April where police chased him.
When asked about the incident Sunday, he claimed he thought the officer was a drug dealer trying to rob him.
Alexander is currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail while awaiting trial.
