Man Accused of Hauling Bombs, Guns Along I-70 Appears in Court
COLUMBUS -- A man allegedly caught hauling an arsenal of homemade weapons on a central Ohio highway appeared in court on Friday morning.
Andrew Boguslawski faces a charge of making and possessing illegal explosives in connection with a New Year's Day traffic stop on I-71 in Madison County. A trooper allegedly found nearly 50 bombs -- along with bomb-making materials, a remote detonator, and four guns -- in Boguslawski's vehicle.
Boguslawski appeared before a Madison County judge on Friday, but jurisdiction over his case may soon be transferred to federal authorities, who are currently discussing the future of the prosecution with county officials.
"It's unclear at this point if the case will remain here in this jurisdiction," Madison County Prosecutor Nick Adkins said. "There [are] still various discussions at levels, including the federal level, as to who will handle this case."
Boguslawski has served with the National Guard in four states, including Ohio, and received intelligence training in Indiana. A Guard spokesperson told ABC 6/FOX 28 in Columbus that Boguslawski's security clearance has been suspended.
The judge currently presiding over the case has set Boguslawski's bail amount at $1 million. The defendant's lawyer has asserted that no evidence exists that indicates his client planned to hurt anyone with the weapons allegedly found in his vehicle.
