COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Court records say an Indiana Guardsman from Moores Hill plans to plead guilty to charges that he had as many as 48 bombs in his car when he was pulled over by police in Ohio.
Documents filed in federal court say 44-year-old Andrew Boguslawski will plead guilty April 1 to possessing unregistered destructive devices. He'll face a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
Ohio police stopped Boguslawski on Jan. 1 for going 88 mph in a 70 mph zone on Interstate 70 west of Columbus.
Prosecutors said he was on his way back to Indiana after visiting family in Pennsylvania.
Boguslawski had worked at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center near Butlerville and told troopers he had the items for training purposes.
Investigators said the devices were capable of causing injuries and death if detonated.
The Indiana National Guard said Boguslawski received military intelligence training and had served at Muscatatuck since 2007, after transferring from the Tennessee National Guard.
He joined the Pennsylvania National Guard out of high school and also served in the Ohio National Guard, according to Indiana guard records.
Officials at Wright State University near Dayton said he earned a bachelor's degree in organizational leadership in 2006.
Boguslawski had been in the Indiana guard's medical discharge unit since November, but a guard spokeswoman said she couldn't discuss his medical condition.
