Moores Hill man facing charges for explosives
A Moores Hill man is facing federal charges after several explosive devices were found in his vehicle in Ohio. Andrew Boguslawski, 44, faces federal charges of illegal possession of destructive devices. The complaint has been filed in US District Court in Columbus, Ohio.
A U.S. Federal Court spokesman, Fred Alverson, reported to media that Boguslawski waived his preliminary and detention hearing set for Wednesday, March 5. His case will then go to a federal grand jury for possible indictment. The government has 30 days to present the case.
Investigators found numerous videos and photographs showing Boguslawski, family members and associates, including his 16-year-old niece, blowing up several devices, according to the court papers. Video also showed he had used the devices as distraction devices near civilians and military personnel, according to the complaint by a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The devices could cause personal injury or property damage.
Ohio police stopped Boguslawski in January for doing 88 mph in a 70 mph zone on Interstate 70. Boguslawski was an Indiana National Guardsman and had worked at the training center near Butlerville, Ind. He told troopers he had these devices in his vehicle for training purposes. He had a medical discharge from the Guard since November, but his medical condition could not be discussed.
Boguslawski remains in custody in Ohio.
