White Supremacists Arrested In Murder Plot


Four members of an apparent white supremacist group have been arrested for kidnapping and attempted murder for holding another member of the group.

The four people, including a mother and son, were arrested during an arson investigation at two local churches. But Greenville Police Chief William Anderson says the arrests don't appear to be linked to the fires.

Anderson called the group isolated, small and unorganized.

The church fires caused more than a million dollars in damage after erupting within an hour of each other January 13th. Also, authorities say they've interviewed and released a man who posted a video online showing one of the churches burning.

Officials say the man is not a person of interest.
