A man identified as an Indiana National Guardsman has been detained on $1m bond in Ohio after police say they found bombs and other weapons in his vehicle.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that 43-year-old Andrew Scott Boguslawski is also a groundskeeper at a National Guard training center near Butlerville, in south-central Indiana.

Boguslawski was stopped for speeding in Ohio on January 1. He was charged with illegally making or possessing an explosive device after 48 explosives, bomb-making material, and four guns were allegedly found in his vehicle. No attorney is listed for him yet.

Lt. Col. Cathy Van Bree told The Dispatch that Boguslawski is an Indiana National Guard specialist who does intelligence analysis and has top-secret clearance.
