Ind. guardsman faces federal explosives complaint

COLUMBUS, Ohio - An Indiana National Guardsman has appeared in court on a charge of illegal possession of destructive devices.

A federal complaint says Andrew Boguslawski had several items that fit the definition of improvised explosive weapons when he was pulled over for speeding in Ohio in January.

The government says nine of the devices could have caused injuries or death if they went off.

The 44-year-old Boguslawski was not required to enter a plea at Monday's hearing, where he acknowledged he had read the charge.

Boguslawski waived a bond hearing Wednesday, meaning the government now has 30 days to seek an indictment. Defense attorney Mark Babb declined to comment.

Boguslawski had worked at an Indiana National Guard training center near Butlerville, Ind., and told troopers he had items for training purposes.
