Man busted with cache of high powered weapons

Posted: Updated:

NEW JERSEY (NBC) - Authorities are scrambling to determine the motives and mind-frame of a New York-born man arrested after police found a cache of high-powered weapons and a map of Fort Drum in his New Jersey motel room.

Prosecutors said when he was arrested he was wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a semiautomatic rifle.

They said they found a cache of weapons in his motel room, including rifles, a grenade launcher and a night vision scope.

His last known address was Reston, Virginia, but the New York-born man appears to have a string of former addresses in Brooklyn and Queens, as well as Maryland according to prosecutors.

Court papers do not say whether he was believed to be planning an attack on Fort Drum or anywhere else.
