NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) - Florida authorities say five self-proclaimed neo-Nazis have been arrested after an ongoing investigation found them in possession of illegal firearms, methamphetamine and Nazi propaganda material.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office says the five were arrested in a Tampa Bay area suburb Tuesday. A sixth person is still at large.

Arrest reports show that while searching the property, deputies found reams of American Nazi Family propaganda that outlined the rules, oaths and hierarchy of the American Nazi Family.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco says suspects allegedly stole identification cards from mailboxes and then used those IDs to obtain credit cards. He added that they likely traded the IDs and credit cards for drugs.

Nacco described the home as a “cesspool” and said detectives could hardly walk through the place.
