Place of Birth: Las Vegas, United States;
Conor Climo is a Las Vegas man who allegedly wanted to attack a synagogue and an LGBTQ bar pleaded guilty Monday to possessing bomb-making components.
He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Nevada said in a statement. He is scheduled to be sentenced on May 14.
Climo was arrested in August, after allegedly talking with members of a white supremacist group about setting fire to a synagogue and making Molotov cocktails and improvised explosive devices.
He admitted to the online conversations with Feuerkrieg Division, an offshoot of the white supremacist extremist group Atomwaffen Division.
Climo also allegedly told FBI agents that he wanted to assemble an eight-member sniper platoon for the attack. He also admitted to conducting surveillance on a bar in downtown Las Vegas that he believed catered to LGBTQ patrons.
During a search of Climo’s house, FBI agents found parts that could be assembled into a bomb, oxidizing agents that could be used for fuel and hand-drawn schematics, the office said. Authorities also seized two rifles – an AR-15 and a bolt-action.
At this moment, no connections were found with this entity.
