California Racist Skinhead Arrested for Alleged Online Threats

  • July 23, 2008

Police in Porterville, California, arrested racist skinhead Jeffrey David Lodor, 27, on July 15, 2008, and later turned him over to authorities in San Luis Obispo County. Lodor is being held on suspicion of making terrorist threats, with a gang enhancement due to his white supremacist gang affiliations.

Lodor is a self-proclaimed "reverend" for the racist Creator Skinhead Movement, which is a local offshoot of the Creativity Movement, a white supremacist group. Lodor is also one of the leaders of the Creativity Prison Ministry. In Porterville, Lodor has achieved some notoriety for distributing racist and anti-Semitic literature to residences and businesses in the area.

This case stems from a call received by San Luis Obispo County authorities on July 13. The caller reported receiving threats via an online social networking account allegedly belonging to Lodor. The Sheriff's office subsequently issued a warrant for Lodor's arrest on the terrorist threat charges; the case remains under investigation.

Lodor is currently awaiting final disposition regarding felony assault charges filed against him last year in Porterville. In October 2007, authorities in Tulare County charged Lodor with assault with a deadly weapon, causing great bodily injury, and the personal use of a deadly weapon, for his alleged role in a stabbing that month at a bar near Springville.
