LACEY TOWNSHIP - Authorities say a suspected white supremacist who wears a Hitler mustache is facing numerous charges after a large cache of weapons and ammunition was found in the Pinelands.

Lacey Township police say that officers in a multi-agency task force were in the region Sunday afternoon looking for trespassers and criminal activity when they came across a suspicious 2007 Hyundai Tucson.

They soon found Bruce Post III dressed in combat gear and another man nearby. Post wore a short mustache centered over his top lip, just like the one associated with Adolf Hitler.

Investigators found an AK-47, a 9 mm handgun, eight 30-round magazines, a 100-round drum magazine and other ammunition they say was hidden in the woods. The items were found near the vehicle where the two men were discovered.

Post, 43, of Trenton, was charged with varying degrees of unlawful possession of weapons. His bail was set at $400,000.

The identity of the man with Post was not released. He was detained at the scene, but was not arrested. Lacey police say that charges against him are possible, pending further investigation.

Anyone with any information about the incident is urged to contact Lacey Township police at 609-693-6636.
