Concord Man arrested after threatening massacre of Jews
Concord police have arrested Ross Farca, 23 after his threats to commit a mass shooting at a synagogue were leaked. Earlier this month, the FBI had forwarded a cyber-tip to Concord police regarding Farca's threatening comments made in the "Steam" online chat room . Farca's screen name was Adolf Hitler (((6 Million)))).
Farca lived with his mother on the 2100 block of Calgary Lane in Concord, and was taken into custody without incident.
Farca was found in possession of a AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, several high capacity magazines, Nazi memorabilia and camoflauge clothing. The gun frame had been purchased legally, earlier this year.
“I would probably get a body count of like 30 (Jews) and then like five police officers because I would also decide to fight to the death,” Farca said in one post, using a derogatory term to refer to Jewish people, according to court records. In other posts, he allegedly discussed picking a “better target than some random synagogue,” and referred to Jews as “subhumans.”
Farca remains in custody at the Contra Costa County Jail. If anyone has information about this case, contact Detective Greg Mahan at (925) 603-5817. Anonymous tips can be left on the tip line at (925) 603-5836.
