Suspected White Supremacist With Hitler Mustache Arrested Over Guns Cache

Police found Bruce Post III lurking in New Jersey woodland.

A suspected white supremacist who resembles Adolf Hitler faces numerous charges after allegedly being caught with a stash of guns and ammunition.

Cops found convicted felon Bruce Post III, 42, lurking in woodland in Lacey Township, New Jersey, on Sunday afternoon sporting a Hitler-style mustache and hairstyle, the New York Daily News reports. He was with another man and immediately aroused their suspicion.

"[Post] was wearing combat gear and gave indications of possible white-supremacist involvement," Lacey Township Police Chief David Paprota said in a statement issued on Monday.

The officers from a Lacey Township Police Department-led multi-agency task force, who were patrolling the woodlands for trespassers, searched the area with K9s.

They found an AK-47, a handgun and several rounds of ammunition nearby, police said. Police charged Post, from Hamilton Township, with several counts, including illegally possessing a weapon as a felon.

Authorities transported him to the Ocean County Correctional Facility in Toms River. His bail is set at $400,000.

Authorities allege they found an AK-47, like the one pictured, near to where Post was lurking in the woodlands.

The officers did not charge the other man, aged 38 and from Trenton. But Paprota said charges against him were pending.

Post has a long criminal history, according to The Associated Press. In 1997, he received a five year sentence for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

He was also connected to the 1995 murder of Andrew Whited, reports the Asbury Park Press, which became the subject of an Investigation Discovery channel documentary called "Evil Kin: Brothers in Arms."

A court convicted him of cleaning up the scene after his younger brother, Joseph Post, stabbed Whited to death.
