PENSACOLA, Fla. (TND) — A man accused of spreading hate in Florida was arrested there again on Thursday during a traffic stop.

Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol said they caught Ronald Lee Murray, Jr., following a dump truck too closely on Interstate 10 near Pensacola.

They reported finding weapons, including handguns, ammunition, and anti-Semitic memorabilia in his pickup truck with a Texas license plate.

They also said Murray “was confirmed to be a convicted felon with multiple felony convictions.”

He’s now charged with driving with a suspended license and possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon.

Murray, who lives outside Houston, was already charged with criminal mischief in Orlando as part of a group called Order of the Black Sun.

The affidavit for his arrest, written by a special agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in September, said last June 10, he helped affix “a white banner that read ‘Destroy ALL Pedophiles’ with swastika symbols on the banner” to a bridge over Interstate 4.

Other members of the group put “a red and white striped swastika flag” and a “White Power World Wide” flag there.

Murray, now 42, was released in lieu of $500 bail and ordered to have “no contact with other co-defendants.”

This time, his bond was set at $26,000 and he has not been released.
