Wilmington, NC – A North Carolina man is facing federal charges for allegedly teaching a would-be cop-killer how to build and detonate explosives in order to murder law enforcement officers.
According to court documents, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) launched an investigation into a suspected extremist after receiving information that he was allegedly attempting to recruit and organize a militia group to “engage against the United States Government,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina said in a press release on Monday.
When police tried to stop the suspect in New York on May 27, 2020, the suspect led them on a two-hour pursuit that ended in an exchange of gunfire.
The suspect was fatally shot during the incident.
Investigators searched his vehicle and located three improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
They also found additional IEDs and multiple firearms during a search of the suspect’s home, according to prosecutors.
Among the items located at the suspect house were Tackleberry Solutions instructional manuals written by 38-year-old Christopher Arthur.
