Two men have been charged after bombs and Neo-Nazi propaganda were discovered in raids on Adelaide homes allegedly linked to a prominent white supremacist group.

South Australia Police confirmed raids were conducted across the city early Wednesday after the Neo-Nazi group’s leader claimed the homes of 15 Adelaide members were raided. 

Police added there was no known threat to the public.

‘The investigation related to people associated with ideologically motivated violent extremism,’ a spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia.

A Surrey Downs man, 28, was charged with possession of extremist material and bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on June 22.

A Munno Para, 32, was charged with possession of an improvised explosive device and instructions for manufacturing explosives or dangerous weapons.

He was bailed to appear in Elizabeth Magistrates Court on May 26.

Police confirmed the charges after National Socialist Network leader Thomas Sewell posted a video on social messaging app Telegram where he accused police of seizing electronic devices and ‘tried to take any sort of political material that they could’. 

Sewell described the raids as a ‘full harassment operation and that there were ‘a lot of fun activities being planned in Adelaide in the coming weeks’, Business Insider Australia reported. 

The former Australian Defence Force soldier made national headlines in March after he posted shocking footage of his violent attack on a security guard at a Channel Nine office in Melbourne.
