“Late in June, firefighters stumbled upon a bunker and a cabin, with investigators unearthing some items that helped them identify the person who had built them, a man in his 80s. The collection of items retrieved from the sites includes dozens of novelty grenades and explosive powder. The old man used barrels and garbage containers strewn across 8 locations to squirrel away weapons and supplies. While he did most of the work single-handedly, evidence suggests that he had the odd helper through the years”, Mr. Schlosser said.

Meanwhile, it is reported that prosecutors are contemplating proffering criminal charges against the old man.
