ROANOKE, Va., May 24 (UPI) -- Former neo-Nazi leader William A. White is being sought by federal authorities on a probation violation, the U.S. Marshals Service said Wednesday.
White, the former self-proclaimed commander of the American National Socialist Workers Party who is on supervised release after serving 2 1/2 years in prison following a 2009 federal conviction of making threats, left his Rockbridge County, Va., home without the permission of his probation officer, said Ron Donelson, senior inspector with the U.S. Marshal's Office in Roanoke, Va.
"We're actively looking for him," Donelson said, adding that regular contact with supervising officials is a condition of White's probation.
White was convicted of threatening people who unknowingly offended his sense of white superiority, The Roanoke Times said Thursday, including apartment residents in Virginia who sued their landlord for discrimination, a college diversity administrator in Delaware and a Missouri bank employee who handled White's credit card account.
After his release he was arrested for littering for distributing fliers promoting a book he had written, the newspaper said.
Mike Price, White's federal probation officer, declined comment Wednesday.
