A SC man may face up to 10 years in prison after he plotted to murder his Black neighbor by reaching out to a white supremacist group. He is charged with one count of solicitation to commit a crime of violence and use of interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire.

"$500 and he's a ghost", Lecroy told the agent during their conversation, the criminal complaint reported.

Unbeknownst to him, however, one of the white supremacists he spoke to was an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant.

A white man in SC who tried to hire a white supremacist group to hang his black neighbor and place a "flaming cross" in his yard ended up soliciting an undercover officer, police said. He also asked the authority to place a "flaming cross" in his front yard and "hang his neighbor from a tree".

According to the indictment, Lecroy made an arrangement with an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent to pay for the murder of his neighbor. He also reportedly sent the agent pictures of his neighbor.

Lecroy gave the money "with acknowledgment that this payment was for the murder of his neighbor", court documents said, according to the Post & Courier.

An affidavit also said that Lecroy told the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent that he might have to hire more people in order to carry out the act. It also was unclear whether Lecroy and his neighbor personally knew each other.

Lecroy and the agent finally met in person on April 9 in Greenwood, South Carolina to take a look at the neighbor's home, and talk about "future targets". If found guilty, Leroy could face up to 10 years in prison and $250,00 in fines.

Prosecutors didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
