An Indiana man pulled over for speeding in Madison County, Ohio on Jan. 1 was found to have four guns and 48 explosives in his vehicle.
Investigators are still trying to determine what suspect Andrew Scott Boguslawski, 43, of Morris Hill, Ind. had planned as he works at a Navy Seals training facility and also had building schematics in his vehicle.
The Madison Press reported Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper William Davis asked Boguslawski, 43, if there were any guns in his vehicle because of a bumper sticker on his car that read, “If you can read this, you’re in range.”
When Boguslawski said no, the trooper proceeded to write the suspect a ticket, that is, until he saw the handle of a gun between the man’s knees.
That is when the trooper drew his service weapon and called for backup.
Investigators found four guns two pistols and two rifles as well as 48 explosive devices and bomb making materials. One of the items found was a remote detonating device.
“I think there is a significant risk to the public,” Assistant Madison County Prosecutor Nick Adkins told the Madison Press. “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.”
Reportedly, Boguslawski hasn’t made any kind of statement.
According to the report, the suspect works at a training facility for the Navy Seals in Indiana and had schematics and other plans for buildings that are part of that training facility. A laptop, GPS and camera were also seized.
Boguslawski was driving west toward Indiana when he was arrested.
The search warrant has also been executed at his home, and federal authorities may become involved.
Boguslawski is charged with one count of illegal manufacture or processing explosives, a felony of the second degree. He is being held on $1 million bond.
