His threatening social media posts attracted the attention of federal investigators
A Loveland, Colorado man who claimed to be angry at the state’s COVID-19 restrictions has been arrested after federal agents say they discovered pipe bombs in his home.
Bradley Bunn, 53, is identified as one of a group of people who were organizing an armed protest to demand the state lift anti-coronavirus measures that are intended to limit the pandemic’s death toll.
Here is the Justice Department’s Sunday statement announcing the arrest:
Northern Colorado Man Arrested For Possessing Pipe Bombs
Here’s an excerpt:
During the search of Bunn’s residence, FBI agents discovered four pipe bombs. Separately, the technicians found two one-pound containers of .308 caliber cartridge reloading gunpowder in Bunn’s vehicle, which is a potential pipe bomb component. Bomb technicians transported the destructive devices to a range where they were successfully rendered safe.
Bunn has been charged with the possession of destructive devices. If convicted he faces not more than 10 years in federal prison, and up to a $250,000 fine. A criminal complaint is a probable cause charging document. Anyone accused of committing a federal crime has a Constitutional right to be indicted by a grand jury.
And ABC News reports:
FBI and ATF agents served search warrants Friday morning at the Loveland, Colorado, home of Bradley Bunn, 53. Agents discovered four pipe bombs and potential pipe bomb components inside the house, according to a press release from the office of U.S. Attorney for Colorado Jason Dunn.
It is not clear what, if anything, Bunn planned to do with the pipe bombs, the official said. Bunn came to the attention of law enforcement after using social media to encourage people to bring assault rifles to a planned May 1 rally at the Colorado capitol building, ABC News has learned.
In the days leading up to the protest, investigators discovered social media posts described as angry and aggressive, the official said. Soon after, investigators received information that he was in possession of pipe bombs. Bunn was arrested before he could attend Friday’s rally.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that federal and state regulators in the U.S. are preparing to file antitrust lawsuits against Google, saying the company abused its dominance of online search and advertising to crush competition and maximize profit.
“It is baffling, to say the least, how Zoom failed to protect Saint Paulus’s Bible study class from a ‘serial offender’ who has been ‘reported multiple times to the authorities,’” the church said.
