Officials searched the Littleton home where he lived with his mother and sister and found a green hand grenade, three “destructive devices”, 10 rifles, four pistols, approximately 30 boxes or cans of ammunition which included .50-caliber shells.

Agents also recovered a bullet-proof vest, and more than half a dozen samples of an “unknown powder.”

The man, Andrew Thomas Gunzner, was stopped by Denver police on March 17, after they saw him driving a silver Jeep Cherokee with red overhead emergency lights and siren activated, according to a search warrant filed in Denver District Court.
