2 white supremacists accused of robbery, making terrorist threats
Two white supremacist gang members have been arrested on suspicion of stealing a woman’s makeup bag, some marijuana plants and a cellphone from a Hesperia home where one of the suspects once lived, authorities said Tuesday.
Joshua Anderson, 26, and Shawn Cavanaugh, 31, both of Hesperia, fled to a nearby home and were arrested by San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies late Monday on suspicion of residential robbery, making terrorist threats and participating in a gang.
The two suspects entered the home on Hemlock Avenue, confronting a man and his girlfriend inside, according to a statement released by the Sheriff’s Department. An altercation followed, and the man was able to call 911. The suspects then rummaged through the girlfriend’s car and also took a phone, her makeup bag and marijuana plants.
Deputies found Anderson and Cavanaugh hiding in a garage in the 1500 block of Aspen Street, along with “paraphernalia consistent with items belonging” to their white supremacist gang affiliation, the statement said.
