Admitted Ridgewood Neo-Nazi Arrested for Threatening New York Anti-Defamation League Head (USA)

A former history professor who has publicly admitted being a neo-Nazi was arrested Wednesday morning at his Heights Road apartment for making multiple threats against the director of the Anti-Defamation League in New York, New Jersey State Police have confirmed.

Jacques Pluss, 57, an ex-adjunct history professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University and other universities, has ties to neo-Nazi organizations and is known to frequent neo-Nazi websites, New Jersey State Police say.

Pluss was fired from FDU in 2005 after it had been made public that he was a leader of the American Nazi Party, according to reports. He admitted his status as a neo-Nazi in 2007 to the History News Network and has called the unversity a "Jewish plutocracy" to the Associated Press shortly after being fired. The University said Pluss was fired not because of his political views but because he was absent for classes.

Pluss is alleged to have sent multiple threatening e-mails to the head of the Anti-Defamation League in New York, which were handed over to the New Jersey State Police, Acting Lieutenant Stephen Jones of the agency's Public Information Office said.

"At 6:30 this morning, State Police detectives with the assistance of our TEAMS Unit, Cyber Crimes Unit and K-9 Unit executed a search warrant at Heights Road," Jones said.

In addition to Pluss being taken into custody, "several" rifles were confiscated during the search of the apartment, Jones said.

The former history professor has been charged with bias intimidation, harassment, contempt of court and weapons possession. Because of a prior court action, Pluss was not allowed to possess weapons, State Police say.

Bail was set at $25,000 with a 10-percent option and Pluss was taken to Bergen County Jail.

Multiple agencies aided in the investigation, led by the NJ State Police's Central Security Unit, which handles threats made against public figures. The Division of Criminal Justice, State Police Crime Scene Investigators and the Ridgewood Police Department were involved in the investigation and arrest of Pluss, Jones said.

The New Jersey Attorney General's Office will likely be handling prosecution, Jones said.
