Teenager Arrested With 18 Rifles, 10 Auto Pistols

FBI agents investigating an 18-year-old, Justin Olsen in Mahoning County, Ohio have stumbled onto a mind-boggling arsenal, after his arrest and searching of his home and car.

They found inside a large gun vault at his Oak Ridge Drive, Boardman home, 15 rifles and shotguns and 10 semi-automatic pistols, 10,000 rounds of ammunition, camouflage clothing and camouflaged backpacks.

The teenager was flagged six months ago when agents found comments online from a user who discussed supporting mass shootings.

According to court documents, the user posted a threat to assault federal law enforcement officers writing, “…shoot every agent on sight,” in a discussion about the Branch Davidian standoff in Waco in 1993.

Agents met with Justin Olsen, 18, on August 7, who gave written consent for a search of his car and bedroom, according to a probable cause warrant.

This resulted in his arrest on charges of threatening to assault a federal law enforcement officer.

Olsen was arraigned on a federal charge of threatening to assault a federal law-enforcement officer Monday in the Thomas D. Lambros Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse downtown – The Vindictator reported exclusively.

Olsen will remain in the Mahoning County jail without bond at least until his continued detention hearing Friday, ordered Magistrate George J. Limbert.
