An Alabama man seemed to be gearing up for mass destruction and murder at the Capitol Building on Wednesday … at least based on what cops say they discovered in his truck.
Lonnie Coffman has been arrested and charged with possession of destructive devices and carrying an unlicensed gun … but that doesn’t tell the half of it.
According to legal docs — obtained by TMZ — Coffman approached cops and told them he was trying to get to his vehicle — a red pickup — the same suspicious vehicle they had received calls about.
Cops say he asked them if they found the bombs, and upon searching his truck … they found 11 mason jars containing an unknown liquid with a golf tee in the top of each jar, cloth rags and lighters. AKA — Molotov cocktails.
They also discovered one M4 Carbine assault rifle with rifle magazines loaded with ammunition … and a black handgun on the front passenger seat. Cops say he also had 2 guns in his pockets when he was detained.
According to the docs … while questioning him, he told them the mason jars contained “melted Styrofoam and gasoline.” ATF officers say this mixture has the effect of napalm.
Coffman’s been arrested, and cops say — based on security footage — he was seen leaving the vehicle parked near the Capitol building on Wednesday morning.
