The office of the US Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio announced Lecron's arrest in conjunction with the arrest of Damon Joseph of Holland, Ohio, who allegedly plotted an attack on two synagogues.

A search of their home that month revealed an AK-47, shotgun, multiple handguns, ammunition and end caps purchased by Armstrong, which can be used in the manufacture of pipe bombs.

Officials said Lecron posted many photos and comments on social media that glorified mass shooters, including Dylann Roof, who opened fire during a prayer service at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., leaving nine people dead.

One of her Tumblr accounts was so offensive it was disabled.

Authorities said Damon Joseph, 21, planned to kill worshipers inside a Jewish synagogue in Toledo with an assault rifle.

Joseph is accused of pledging his support for ISIS and plotting attacks on two synagogues in Toledo.

The female suspect was planning to conduct a mass murder at a bar in Toledo. It was unclear whether or not she has a lawyer.

An official at the press conference Monday stated that Joseph had told an undercover agent that he hated "the gays, the Christians, the Catholics, the Jews, you name it".

While federal authorities say Joseph became radicalized before the Tree of Life shooting, they also believe it motivated him. He said the choice "would depend on 'which one will have the most people, what time and what day".

Lecron and an associate flew to Denver in order to visit Columbine High School.

Whilst I would love to have the opportunity to see Toure play again in the Premier League I believe such a move would be unlikely. The 35-year-old had a number of offers in the summer, including some from the Premier League, but opted to join Olympiakos.

Vincent Armstrong, 23, has been arrested in connection to a Toledo terror plot.

Lecron also allegedly suggested an attack on her workplace, which she described as polluting a river, the Daily Beast reported.

Until recently, she was working at Frickers bar in Maumee, Ohio.

"On behalf of the citizens of Toledo, I would like to thank the FBI, Homeland Security, the Toledo Police Department, and all law enforcement agencies who played a role in helping to prevent a potential catastrophe".

U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman said that the two cases showed that "terrorists don't follow one playbook" and have different motivations. For example, on October 21, Joseph expressed support for "martyrdom operations" and said, "what must be done, must be done" and "there will always be casualties of war".

In another post, he said: 'There will always be casualties of war'.

Rabbi Jeffrey Myers watches the installation of a menorah outside the Tree of Life Synagogue before holding a celebration on the first night of Hanukkah, on December 2 in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh. "I could see myself carrying out this type of operation", he said. "They wouldn't even expect [an attack] in my area". "He ultimately made a decision to target two Toledo-area synagogues for a mass-casualty attack in the name of ISIS".

Lecron expressed fascination with mass killings and idolized the shooters at Columbine, Fortunato said. Joseph pulled up photographs of the inside of the synagogue and said he wanted the attack to begin in the sanctuary.

On December 7, he was arrested after accepting two rifles which had been rendered inoperable by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents. In addition to making recruiting videos he hoped the terrorist group would use to attract supporters and expressing his support for "martyrdom operations", Joseph complained his local mosque was critical of the Islamic State. A gunman shot and killed 11 people while they worshipped on October 27 at the temple.
