New reports indicate that 51-year-old Gary Gravelle, an avowed white supremacist, has recently been indicted on federal charges for allegedly sending a letter containing threats to assassinate President Trump, as well as fake anthrax.
Earlier in the week, Gravelle was indicted in federal court for “threatening to kill, injure, and intimidate people, and explode property in Connecticut and elsewhere,” after having previously been arrested for similar offenses in 2013 and 2018.
“I, Gary Gravelle […] am coming to KILL Donald Trump,” wrote Gravelle, who also mailed a white powder substance, and similarly targeted a Jewish synagogue and an Islamic center, while additionally calling in numerous bomb threats.

Gary Gravelle, 51, also known as Roland Prejean, was indicted in Connecticut federal court Thursday for “threatening to kill, injure and intimidate people and explode property in Connecticut and elsewhere.”
Gravelle was arrested in September 2018 for violating the terms of his release after previously being convicted in 2013 on similar charges related to sending threatening letters.
In his letter to Trump, Gravelle wrote: “I, Gary Gravelle, … as a faithful soldier of the AKA, am coming to KILL Donald Trump …” The letter also contained a white powder. Gravelle is a member of American Knights of Anarchy, a white separatist group.
Gravelle also called and emailed a number of other organizations and entities threatening to detonate explosives — those ranged from local credit unions in New Haven to the Burlington International Airport.
No injuries were reported in relation to the packages and the powder in some of the packages was determined to be baby powder. Gravelle faces a maximum sentence of a century in prison based on the charges in the indictment.
