NEWARK, N.J. — A New Jersey man has been charged with conspiring with three other men to provide material support to the Islamic State terror group.

Samuel Rahamin Topaz, of Fort Lee, was charged on Thursday with conspiring to travel overseas to join the terrorist organization.

Prosecutors say the 21-year-old was arrested at his home and made an initial court appearance in front of a federal judge in Newark. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.

His is the fourth ISIS-related arrest in the tri-state this week.

Prosecutors say that one of the co-conspirators was a 20-year-old man arrested this week in New York, while another traveled oversees to join the terror group in May. The third co-conspirator wasn't identified but was described as a New Jersey resident.

The charge against Topaz carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
