Trooper Dash Cam Shows Weapons Pulled from Indiana Man's Minivan
COLUMBUS (Lisa Rantala/Kate Liebers) -- A recently released dash cam video revealed more about one trooper's discovery of dozens of home-made bombs in an Indiana National Guardsman's minivan.
The footage captures the moment the Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper draws his gun during the New Year's traffic stop. He said that was the moment he saw the butt of a pistol between the driver's legs.
Investigators later discovered 48 homemade bombs, a few assault rifles and a remote detonating device in the vehicle.
Andrew Boguslawski, 43, had been traveling 15 miles an hour over the limit on Interstate 70 in Madison County. He told officers he was headed home to Indiana after visiting family.
"I wasn't even paying attention to the speed," Boguslawski said, as depicted in the video.
He also told the trooper he had no weapons in the car. After discovering the pistol, the trooper held the driver at gunpoint until backup arrived. Unsure if Boguslawski was carrying ammunition, troopers called the bomb squad.
Boguslawski's attorney said the devices were all training equipment and that his client intended to hurt no one.
Boguslawski faces multiple charges related to making and possessing weapons. He was held in jail on a $1 million bond.
