COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – An Indiana man has been sentenced for illegally possessing 13 unregistered destructive devices when he was stopped by an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper on Jan. 1, 2014 on Interstate 70 in Madison Co., Ohio.

Andrew Scott Boguslawski, 44, of Moores Hill, Ind. was ordered to serve 24 months in prison and to remain under court supervision for three years following his time in prison.

Boguslawski pleaded guilty in April to possession of nine fully-assembled unregistered destructive devices and four unregistered destructive devices consisting of component parts, designed and intended for use in conversion into bombs, and from which bombs could be readily assembled. .

“Boguslawski’s bomb-builder lifestyle presents an extreme danger to the public,” Assistant U.S. Attorneys Dana Peters and Salvador Dominguez told the court prior to sentencing.

Boguslawski admitted in his plea agreement that he had the component parts to assemble 20 more destructive devices in his Indiana home.
