Police: Man Plotted Armed Mannequin, Bomb Attack on Ohio Station

June 30, 2016  | 

A man who allegedly plotted to attack an Ohio police station using armed mannequins and explosives has been arrested, reports the Associated Press.

Fifty-one-year-old Timothy Ward was arrested Tuesday at his father's home in Lake Township, OH, on weapons and retaliation charges. It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney.

Police were notified in June by a former girlfriend that Ward was planning to use mannequins to shoot officers and blow up the police station in Marlboro Township, according to court documents. In response, federal and local law enforcement officials searched Ward's and his father's homes June 15.

Police Chief Ron Devies said the FBI told him they found bomb-making materials and weapons parts.

Great that he was stopped before anyone had to die.

This is an "interesting story", has this perp seen too many movies or what? Glad he is off the street.
