Washington-According to federal prosecutors, an Alabama man parked a pickup truck containing 11 homemade bombs, an assault rifle and a pistol, only two blocks from the U.S. Capitol.
This is one of the most disturbing details released by federal prosecutors this week as they screened what happened when pro-Trump rioters attacked the Capitol. Others were accused of carrying guns and ammunition on the grounds of the Capitol.
Lonnie Leroy Coffman, 70, of Forkville, Alabama, is accused of planting pickup trucks.
A bomb squad found Arsenal in the fight to defend the federal government, but the latter was overwhelmed by pro-Trump rioters.
According to CNN, Koffman has been arrested and charged with possessing unregistered firearms and carrying a handgun without a license. He told the police that his glass bottle contained “melted Styrofoam and gasoline.”
Federal investigators said that if the mixture exploded, it would have an effect on napalm, “because it will make flammable liquids better adhere to objects hit during the explosion,” according to court records.
Kaufman parked the pickup truck on First St SE in Hill near the National Republican Club (commonly known as the Capitol Hill Club) at 9:15 am Eastern Time. Police said the truck was equipped with pistols, M4 carbine assault rifles and rifle magazines full of ammunition in the passenger seats.
Kaufman appeared in court before a federal judge this week and was detained at least until his next court appearance on Tuesday.
