New Jersey Man With Instruction Manual For Owning A Slave Plus 17 Guns And A Grenade Launcher Arrested
New Jersey State Police

If he didn't crash his car, Joseph Rubino from Lafayette Township, New Jersey, might never have been caught for possessing an arsenal of weapons and drugs meant for trafficking.

He also would have continued slipping under the radar with all his paraphernalia touting white supremacist propaganda.

When police arrived on scene on July 24 after his traffic accident, they discovered firearms and ammunition as they extracted the 57-year-old out of his vehicle, according to Buzzfeed News.

The discovery led to a search warrant for Rubino's home, where police found a bigger cache of weapons and illegal drugs.

According to a criminal complaint filed by the New Jersey Federal Court, police found shotguns, rifles with scopes, handguns, silencers, high-capacity magazines, a grenade launcher and six semi-automatic weapons.

New Jersey U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said the police also discovered Rubino had 3 kilograms of marijuana, 200 cannabis vape cartridges and 70 grams of methamphetamine.

In addition, he had a box filled with clothing; bumper stickers with the "SS Bolts" neo-Nazi symbol commonly sported by outlaw motorcycle gang members; and a racist handbook called the N****r Owner's Manual, which the complaint described as "an instruction manual for owning a slave."

Federal authorities also noted Rubino was convicted for writing bad checks in 1999.

People were aghast over Rubino's horrifying stash.

Sarcastic comments about video games allegedly emboldening violence were made.

Marijuana could do without all the bad rep.

Rubino was charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of firearms in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to the criminal complaint.

While many were relieved for the prevention of another potential mass murder, authorities confirmed there was no evidence that Rubino would commit mass violence or an act of domestic terrorism.

Rubino's arrest came a week before El Paso's racially-motivated shooting in which 22 people were killed at a Walmart by a White nationalist domestic terrorist who was targeting Latinos.

There is no information regarding an attorney for Rubino at this time.
