Police: Weapons, Explosives Kept By Y2K Survivalist POSTED: 5:09 pm EDT July 1, 2006 UPDATED: 5:16 pm EDT July 1, 2006 YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- Police said they believe a large collection of weapons and explosive materials removed from a home Friday had been stockpiled for Y2K. Neighbors were evacuated for about two hours while authorities hauled away several assault-style rifles, a bazooka, other firearms, boxes of ammunition, grenades, gunpowder, ammonium nitrate fertilizer and other potentially explosive chemicals. Detectives and federal authorities planned to interview Randy Telshaw, 53, the man who lived in the home. Police described him as a "Y2K survivalist" who was worried about the potential for chaos at the start of the century. Officers were alerted Thursday evening by a friend who checked on the home while Telshaw was hospitalized after being shot in an apparent burglary attempt. There was no evidence of any plan to use the items to blow up a government building, said Detective Sgt. Joe DeMatteo, who heads up the Youngstown Police Department's bomb squad. Lets see so he probably had a couple rifles, some reloading equipment, inert grenades, inert rocket tube, and some fertilizer in his garage. I bet he wants to blow up a couple gov buildings now.
