    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- “An Agoura Hills man was arrested after authorities said he made criminal threats against the Islamic Center of Southern California.

    Los Angeles police said 40-year-old Mark Feigin had a large cache of weapons and ammunition at his home and had the means to carry out the threats.

    Authorities said Feigin called the Islamic Center and made deadly threats to its members in September.

    "It's sad that we have this maniac threatening this Islamic center," Hedab Tarifi of the Islamic Center of Southern California said.

    One call was peppered with profanities and the following day authorities said Feigin threatened to kill members.

    "The male caller threatened to kill the person who answered the phone along with other members of the center because of the caller's hatred for Muslims and his belief that Muslims will destroy the United States," Cmdr. Horace Frank with the Los Angeles Police Department stated.

    Officials said Feigin was arrested on Oct. 18 at the home he shares with his mother in Agoura Hills.

    A search of the home unveiled rifles, shotguns, handguns, several modified high capacity magazines and thousands of rounds of ammunition, according to investigators.

    The LAPD Counter Terrorism and Special Operations Bureau Major Crimes Division was also investigating whether Feigin was behind dozens of angry anti-Muslim tweets, one of them stating, "Filthy Islamic beasts have no place in America."

    By Jason Kandel and Kim Baldonado


    “A 40-year-old man faces hate crime allegations after his arrest in connection with making criminal threats against the Islamic Center of Southern California, officials said.

    Mark Lucian Feigin, of Agoura, was arrested on Wednesday, police said. He was arrested during a traffic stop near his mobile home, where neighbors say he lives with his mother.

    He is suspected of calling in threats to the Islamic Center twice -- once on Sept. 19 and again the next day, LAPD Cmdr. Horace Frank, of the Counter Terrorism and Special Operations Bureau, said in a news conference.

    During a search of the suspect's mobile home, detectives found numerous rifles, shotguns, handguns, several modified high-capacity magazines and thousands of rounds of ammunition, Frank said.”​

    Mark Lucian Feigin aka Milosz Feigin.

    And this, from an anti-scientology site:

    Here

    “... received tips from two readers, one of whom knows Feigin personally, that Mark Feigin is the same man who is listed in Scientology’s publications as taking courses in 2004, and who has posted online statements about his involvement in the church in the years since then.”​

    Its 11 PMish PDT and it seems the maintainence maneuver has been acheived.

    Anyhow, this is an odd case. I think the guy is forty, has been working as a realtor, does live in a mobile home park that is actually owned by the residents. I don't think he lives with his mother as has been reported. His mother and father live in the Los Angeles area, as does a sister. The sister has been estranged from him for many years.
