Brighton Man Stopped With Bomb-Making Material

View Comments

Authorities say a Brighton-area man who may be connected to an anti-government group was found during a traffic stop with bomb-making paraphernalia, a loaded gun, a bulletproof vest and a photo of President Barack Obama.

Richard S. McLeod was arraigned Tuesday in 55th District Court in Mason on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and unlawful possession of body armor. The 48-year-old was being held in the Ingham County Jail.

Court records didn’t list a lawyer for McLeod, and there’s no working telephone listing for him.

Ingham County sheriff’s Maj. Joel Maatman tells the Lansing State Journal the FBI is assisting in the investigation after Monday’s arrest.

FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold says she can’t confirm or deny the agency’s involvement.
