Indiana Guardsman Pleads Guilty To Bomb Charges

An Indiana guardsman who served as groundskeeper for Muscatatuck Urban Training Center in Butlerville, Indiana has pleaded guilty in a federal district court to felony bomb charges. You may recall the strange story about Andrew Boguslawski being pulled over by Ohio state police on I-70 near Columbus last January for speeding when police discovered that his van contained 48 homemade bombs and remote control detonating devices. Boguslawski told police that he was traveling from Pennsylvania to his rural home near the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center at the time, and that the explosive devices were "smoke bombs" used for suicide-bomber training. Police also found blueprints in the van for a military training facility. Reports at the time indicated that police were unsure whether the blueprints were for Muscatatuck or another military training facility. Although Boguslawski was originally charged in state court, his case was transferred to federal court. According to the Columbus Dispatch, Boguslawski faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

UPDATE: I'm curious whether Boguslawski's "smoke bombs" were the same type used at the Boston Marathon bombing. Here's a great video by an observant Ausie who has helped expose last year's terrorist attack as a total hoax with crisis actors and all.
