Was Indiana guardsman planing on attacking a military facility?

An Indiana guardsman was stopped on New Year's Eve for speeding. Andrew Scott Boguslawski, 43 was clocked doing 85 mph in a 70 mph zone on I-70.

When the Ohio State trooper approached Boguslawski's car, he noticed the handle of a gun sticking out from between his legs.

The trooper called for backup and ordered Boguslawski out of the car. When the car was searched, they found three more guns, which were all loaded. Then investigators made an astonishing find, 48 bombs in his car.

They also found materials to make more bombs, a bulletproof vest and blueprints for what's they believed was an undisclosed Navy Seal facility. It was unknown at the time of Boguslawski's arrest if the blueprints were for the facility where he worked or not.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that, "Madison County Prosecutor Stephen Pronai said. Boguslawski’s civilian job is as a groundskeeper at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center in south-central Indiana." Boguslawski is from Moores Hill, Ind., and appeared to be heading to Indiana when he was stopped.

It's reported all the bombs were small and investigators from the ATF searched Boguslawski's house trying to determine if he was going to attack a military facility. They also poured through his computer, cameras and the GPS in his car.

It would appear that disaster was possibly averted and what's frightening is it's reported that he was an intelligence analyst and had high security clearance. So it's very possible he could have slipped into the military facility he was planning on attacking with no problems. Boguslawski is in the Tri-County Jail in Mechanicsburg in lieu of a $1 million bond. He's been charged with one count of manufacturing explosives, a second-degree felony.

Boguslawski's intentions and what he was planning on doing with all those bombs probably won't be known until his trial begins. His preliminary court hearing is set for Friday.
