COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – 44-year-old Andrew Boguslawski of Indiana is being held without bond facing a federal charge of illegally possessing thirteen destructive devices.

An Ohio State trooper discovered firearms, ammunition, explosives and detonators in his car after pulling him over for speeding on New Year’s Day. 2 NEWS obtained video from the cruiser camera.  The trooper stopped Boguslawski between Dayton and Columbus on Interstate-70.

Federal law requires that destructive devices be registered in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.

Fred Alverson from the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of Ohio says the case will now go before a federal grand jury in the next 30 days.

The grand jury will decide if Boguslawski should be charged.

If charged and found guilty of the possession of the unregistered destructive devices charge, Boguslawski faces up to ten years in prison. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
