CINCINNATI — A man being held Wednesday on $1 million bond in central Ohio after police say they found bombs and other weapons in his vehicle is a specialist in the Indiana National Guard and is a grounds-keeper at the guard training center near Butlerville in Jennings County.
Andrew Scott Boguslawski, 43, arrested in January after a traffic stop, completed training in military intelligence in April 2010, military records show.
Lt. Col. Cathy Van Bree told The Associated Press by email Wednesday that Boguslawski’s security clearance has been suspended, along with “all favorable personnel actions,” meaning he can’t be promoted, receive awards or other privileges.
Boguslawski was transferred in November to the medical discharge unit, but Van Bree said she couldn’t discuss his condition.
Boguslawski was stopped Jan. 1 for speeding west of Columbus. Madison County authorities say he was charged with illegally making or possessing an explosive device, after 48 bombs, four guns and a remote detonating device were allegedly found in his vehicle.
County authorities said an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper stopped Boguslawski for going 85 mph in a 70 mph zone. Police said that although Boguslawski said he had no weapons, the officer spotted the handle of a gun between his knees as the officer returned with a ticket.
No attorney was listed Wednesday afternoon for him. He is scheduled for a court appearance Friday.
