Ohio police say they are investigating a man who was pulled over on New Year’s Day after a cache of weapons–including 48 bombs–was found in his car.
43-year old Andrew Scott Boguslawski–a National Guardsman–was arrested after being pulled over for speeding when the officer noticed the handle of a handgun hidden between his legs. A subsequent search of the car uncovered two pistols, two rifles, 48 explosive devices and tools and materials to make additional explosives. Some of the explosives were reportedly connected to a remote, which was also found in the car.
Boguslawski was reportedly heading to Indiana, where he works at a training facility for Navy Seals, and had schematics for the building with him. He allegedly told an officer that he had plans to make a vest with the explosives.
“I think there is a significant risk to the public,” said Assistant Madison County Prosecutor Nick Adkins. “Until we can sort through the facts of this case and what we have here and what his intent was, it is necessary to keep the public safe.”
As of now, he is being held on a million dollar bond with a charge of one count of illegal manufacture or processing explosives, a felony of the second degree, but officials say they are looking into whether the case is under state or federal jurisdiction, which could change things. A GPS system and laptop are currently being analyzed for more information.
