An Indiana National Guardsman is being held on a $1 million bond in Ohio after he was caught at a traffic stop with four guns and nearly 50 bombs in his car.

Andrew Scott Boguslawski, 43, of Morris Hill, Ind., was charged with one felony count of illegal manufacturing or processing explosives and is set for a hearing on Friday, the Madison Pressreported.

Mr. Boguslawski was stopped by troopers for speeding on Jan. 1 in Madison County. A bumper sticker reading, “If you can read this, you’re in range,” prompted the officer to ask the driver if he had any weapons in the car, Assistant Madison County Prosecutor Nick Adkins told the newspaper.

Mr. Boguslawski denied having any weapons in the vehicle. The officer went to write the man a ticket and when he returned noticed the handle of a gun between the man’s knees.

“At that point, he drew his service weapon, held the man there and called for backup,” Mr. Adkins said.

Investigators found two pistols, two rifles and 48 explosive devices and tools and materials to make additional explosives, the Madison Press reported.

“Most concerning to me was that they found a remote detonating device,” Mr. Adkins said. “The majority of the devices, I would not classify as high tech, but some of the devices were set up to be activated with the remote detonator.”

Lt. Col. Cathy Van Bree told the Columbus Dispatch that Mr. Boguslawski is an Indiana National Guard specialist with top-secret clearance. He works at a training facility for Navy Seals and had schematics and other plans for buildings that are part of that training facility, Mr. Adkins told the Madison Press.
