2 Charged in Alleged Plot to Attack Synagogues, Churches

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Two men described by authorities as white supremacists have been charged in Virginia with trying to illegally buy weapons and explosives to use in attacks on synagogues and black churches.
    
In an affidavit, FBI agent James R. Rudisill says Robert C. Doyle and Ronald Beasley Chaney III tried to buy an automatic weapon, explosives and a pistol with a silencer from three undercover agents posing as illegal firearms dealers.
    
The affidavit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Richmond. In it, Rudisill says an associate of the two men, 30-year-old Charles D. Halderman, is accused of plotting to rob a jeweler and use the money to help Doyle buy land and stockpile weapons for "an impending race war." Halderman charged with a robbery conspiracy.
    
The defendants' attorneys did not respond to telephone messages Tuesday.
