The Post has discovered that the suspected neo-Nazi accused of purposefully slamming a U-Haul vehicle into a White House security barrier is 19-year-old Sai Varsith Kandula.

Kandula, a Chesterfield, Missouri resident, was recognized as the individual who careened the box truck emblazoned with a Nazi flag into barricades around Lafayette Square, just feet from the White House, on Monday night, according to US Park Police authorities.

He was charged with threatening to murder, kidnap, or damage a president, vice president, or family member, as well as assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, trespassing, and destruction of government property, according to US Park Police.

According to law enforcement officials, Kandula hired a U-Haul truck from Dulles International Airport in Virginia after flying from St. Louis.

After crashing into the security barriers, he allegedly left the front seat and began waving the red, swastika-emblazoned flag before being apprehended.

According to ABC, Kandula allegedly told FBI agents that he intended to take over the nation and kill the president.

Investigators are looking into whether mental health issues had a part, and it was unclear when he would appear in court.

The box truck rammed through the barrier before coming to a stop, according to footage uploaded by the Insider Paper from the site.

The accident caused no injuries.

Chris Zaboji, 25, said he was running in the vicinity when he heard the disturbance. He stated that the motorist crashed through the security barrier at least twice.

“When the van backed up and rammed it again, I decided I wanted to get out of there,” he told reporters.

In addition to the Nazi flag, FOX 5 DC stated that authorities discovered duct tape, a bag, and a notepad filled with writing from inside the car.

Authorities use a robot to inspect the car, according to video uploaded by FOX 5’s Shomari Stone.

CNN reported that no bombs were discovered inside, citing a law enforcement source.

According to FOX 5, if Kandula had passed over the security barrier, he would have confronted two additional levels of fence before reaching the White House.

Kandula’s LinkedIn page appears to have no undergraduate or career background, although it does reveal that he graduated from Marquette High School in Chesterfield.

“hi, my name is Sai, and my career pursuit is dedicated in the field of data analytics,” the page says.

Kandula touts herself as proficient in the coding languages Python and Java. He claims to be “currently certified in Google and IBM as a data analyst, and to have completed courses that certify my skills in that field.”
