Craig Cobb, A white supremacist . from Sherwood, N.D., who was jailed and ordered to stay away from Leith, N.D. after terrorizing the town appears to be repeating his tactics in small towns in Nebraska.
Cobb is living in Sherwood, N.D., while serving a four-year probation for felony terrorizing with a gun, the end of a bizarre few months when he flew Nazi flags in front of his house in Leith and painted swastikas on his trees and buildings.
The report says that the town of Red Cloud, Neb., held an emergency town hall meeting Tuesday to look into its legal options for dealing with the situation,. Two of the properties Cobb purchased for $25 and $100 are in Red Cloud, while another worth $3,410 is in the nearby town of Inavale.
Mike Goebel (Red Cloud resident) is reported to have said a local militia also met Monday night because of threats and racial insults posted by Cobb or someone impersonating him on a community Facebook page.
“I don’t want my kids to grow up seeing that kind of hate,” Goebel said.
Cobb won’t formally own the property until a district court judge confirms the sale in court, likely scheduled in November, said Webster County Attorney Sarah Bockstadter. She said anyone with an interest in the property can redeem it first, or someone can make a higher offer when it’s in court.
