London, Ohio • A man being held Wednesday on $1 million bond in central Ohio after police say they found bombs and other weapons in his vehicle is a specialist in the Indiana National Guard, trained as an intelligence analyst, a Guard official said.

Andrew Scott Boguslawski, 43, arrested in January after a traffic stop, completed training in military intelligence in April 2010, military records show.

Lt. Col. Cathy Van Bree told The Associated Press by email on Wednesday that Boguslawski’s security clearance has been suspended, along with "all favorable personnel actions," meaning he can’t be promoted, receive awards or other privileges.

Boguslawski was transferred in November to the medical discharge unit, but Van Bree said she couldn’t discuss any information about his condition.

Boguslawski was stopped Jan. 1 for speeding on a highway west of Columbus. Madison County authorities say he was charged with illegally making or possessing an explosive device, after 48 bombs, four guns and a remote detonating device were allegedly found in his vehicle.

County authorities said an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper stopped Boguslawski for going 85 mph in a 70 mph zone. Police said that although Boguslawski said he had no weapons, the officer spotted the handle of a gun between his knees as the officer returned with a ticket.

No attorney was listed Wednesday afternoon for him. He is scheduled for a court appearance Friday. Van Bree referred questions to the Madison County prosecutor about why Boguslawski might have been carrying the weapons. The prosecutor did not immediately return a call.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is also investigating, and also didn’t immediately return a call for comment.

Boguslawski completed infantry training at Fort Benning, Ga., in 1999. But Van Bree said he was never deployed overseas. He served in the Ohio National Guard in 2002-2006. He has also served in the National Guard in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Tennessee, Van Bree said.

After transferring to the Indiana National Guard in November 2007, he also was employed as a groundskeeper at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center near Butlerville, Ind.
