Gregory Lepsky of Point Pleasant, New Jersey is expected t appear in Federal court for chargers for planning to provide support material to ISIS according a criminal complaint.
The 20-year-old was first arrested by the police in February when he threatened to kill his mother and stabbed the family dog as bing “dirty”. He told officials he pledged his allegiance to “Allah.”
He has also written several posts on social media about his support of ISIS and his intentions.
“My birth religion is basically Islam lmao…But I want to be different I want to be religious and group up and be a martyr,” Lepsky wrote in a facebook post in February.
He told a user he would sacrifice himself and drive a “bunch of explosives” to where the “enemies” were and thus avoid going to hell.
When the police searched Lepsky’s house they found a new pressure cooker in the closet of his bedroom and searches for instructions to build the device on his computer.
Lepsky could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 charge if convicted.
