According to documents, Lutchman has a criminal history dating back to 2006. He describes himself as a Muslim convert.
Since November, Lutchman was allegedly communicating with three paid FBI informants, detailing what the FBI describes as his "strong support" for ISIS and "his hatred for everything in America."Over Christmas, he was in contact with someone he described as an ISIS operative in Syria and asked the operative what he should do for ISIS if he can't make it to Syria, according to documents. The operative ultimately suggested Lutchman plan an operation for New Year's and kill "1000000s of coffer" -- referring to non-believers, according to the FBI.
