First post in L&P. Here is an article for you guys. I'll post a follow up article too, and a couple other local news stations articles. I don't know anything about the guy, I guess he could actually be a bomb manufacturer or something who knows...He hasn't been charged with anything yet, but I think is pretty much painted as a wacko by our local media. Picture a story about you and your house... http://wcco.com/topstories/local_story_057174123.html clock Feb 26, 2007 10:49 pm US/Central Military-Grade Arsenal Found In Bloomington Home (WCCO) Bloomington, Minn. Police found a number of military-grade weapons at a home in Bloomington, Minn. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension was called in to a home on the 1700 block of 84th Street West to retrieve the weapons. They are also receiving assistance from the FBI, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Bloomington Police Bomb Squad. Authorities found detonation cords, blasting caps and some type of military explosive, as well as about a dozen semiautomatic weapons and ammunition. "It's merely precautionary at this time," said Bloomington Police Commander Kevin Hinrichs. "It is a fairly dangerous situation, but we have a good handle on it. And at this time there doesn't appear to be any danger of any explosions." Five nearby homes have been evacuated. Some neighbors said the man living in the home searched has been living there for some time and was "a gun enthusiast" and an avid collector. "They are good neighbors. We shoveled their driveway," said neighbor Nettie Beckler. "I guess I am in shock by all this." The man who lives at the house regularly attends gun and knife shows, often selling knives and military clothing, according to Jim Wright, owner of Crocodile Productions Inc., which stages many of the shows. He described the man as "aboveboard" in his dealings. "I'd be shocked if he did anything illegal," Wright said. The homeowner was taken into custody by Hennepin County authorities on probable cause of possessing explosive devices. Some of the items retrieved from the house have been referred to as military materials. Authorities have called Army officials from Wisconsin to the scene.
