Craig Cobb, a white supremacist who recently found out he's part black, was arrested on Saturday according to a report from The Bismark Tribune.

Cobb and fellow neo-Nazi Kynan Dutton were taken into custody after Leith, N.D., residents called 911 to tell police that the men had confronted them with a rifle and a shotgun. The sheriff told the Tribune that the men will be charged with three counts of terrorizing.

Cobb sent this text message to the Tribune before he was taken into custody:

Because of the many violences (sic) and harassments against we (sic) and the children, we have commenced armed patrols of Leith.

Cobb moved to Leith a few months ago to create a haven for white supremacists. He purchased 16 plots of land and invited fellow white supremacists to join him. Though his endeavor was off to a slow start in August, Cobb wasn't discouraged.

"If I'm the only one in Leith forever, white consciousness has already been raised," he said at the time.
