An Oregon man has been arrested after allegedly placing Neo-Nazi propaganda outside a Portland organization that helps refugees and immigrants last month, authorities said Wednesday.

Jarl Judson Rockhill, 35, of West Linn, was arrested at a traffic stop in Clackamas County following an investigation into the April 24 incident at the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization, Portland police said.

Officials with the organization had reported that an unknown man had placed a neo-Nazi propaganda sticker on the fence of the property, police said. Surveillance video showed the suspect and his vehicle.

After identifying Rockhill as the suspect and taking him into custody, police said investigators executed a search warrant on his vehicle and home, where investigators discovered evidence linking Rockhill to the crime.
