Washington Man Arrested and Charged with Making Antisemitic Threats Against Neighbor

A 48-year old La Center, Washington man was arrested today on a criminal complaint charging him with cyberstalking and two counts of interstate threats, announced U.S. Attorney Brian T. Moran. Mathias Douglas Kane was arrested late yesterday without incident outside his home. 

According to the criminal complaint, Kane made online threats against a neighbor who took in Kane’s 13-year-old daughter when the child was removed from the home he shared with an abusive girlfriend.  On multiple occasions in January 2020, Kane posted personally identifying information about his neighbor online and threatened to harm her.  Kane posted antisemitic comments and threatened to harm state Child Protective Services (CPS) workers, members of law enforcement and Jews.  Kane identified himself as a White Nationalist and used a screenname and images involving Nazi symbols.

On two occasions Kane was contacted by law enforcement regarding his access to weapons.  Kane denied possessing firearms, but refused to allow law enforcement to search his home.  Kane posted multiple times about manufacturing guns and ammunition and his access to firearms parts.  A search of his home and vehicle last night did not recover any firearms.

Cyberstalking and making interstate threats are both punishable by up to 5 years in prison. The full legal complaint can be seen here.
