A Colorado man was arrested on May 1 by federal authorities after pipe bombs were discovered in his home, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado said in a statement.

Bradley Bunn, a 53-year-old from Loveland, was served two search warrants for his residence. The FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and other local law enforcement officers then searched his home and found four pipe bombs.

Technicians present during the search also found two 1-pound containers of .308 caliber cartridge reloading gunpowder in Bunn’s vehicle, which according to authorities, is considered a potential component of a pipe bomb.

CNN also reported that agents also found other bomb components such as galvanized steel pipes, end caps, shotgun primers, fuses, and several bottles of smokeless powder.

“Bomb technicians transported the destructive devices to a range where they were successfully rendered safe,” the press release stated.

It wasn’t clear what Bunn planned to do with the pipe bombs that he allegedly built.

He was charged with possession of destructive devices. If convicted, he can serve up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

“Bunn is scheduled to have his initial appearance via video conference tomorrow before a U.S. Magistrate Judge, where he will be advised of his rights and the charges pending against him,” the press release stated.

According to ABC News, Bunn had been planning an armed protest on May 1 to demand the state lift its lockdown restrictions. which were put in place because of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic.

Bunn encouraging people to bring firearms to the May 1 rally caught the attention of law enforcement. Authorities were notified that Bunn was allegedly in possession of pipe bombs, reported ABC, and he was arrested before he could attend the rally.
