Omaha man ticketed for posting neo-Nazi stickers near temple

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Omaha police have ticketed a man accused of posting neo-Nazi recruitment stickers on poles outside a synagogue.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 30-year-old Jonathan Ziegler has been cited on suspicion of damage to property and hate intimidation and faces up to six months in jail and $500 if he’s convicted.

Police say surveillance video showed Ziegler on April 9 posting the recruitment stickers around Temple Israel, which is part of the Tri-Faith Initiative campus at 132nd and Pacific streets.

The stickers promoted a neo-Nazi group. Genesis Health Club, where Ziegler had been employed as a trainer, said in a public post Tuesday that Ziegler no longer worked there.
