A 70-year-old Trump supporter toting an assault rifle and 11 Molotov cocktails that amounted to “homemade napalm’’ was among those arrested over Wednesday’s assault on the Capitol, authorities said Friday.
Lonnie Coffman of Falkville, Ala., had the “ready to go’’ explosive devices in his red GMC pickup truck in the area along with an M4 carbine assault rifle and two handguns, Justice Department officials said.
Coffman used gasoline and styrofoam to fashion the devices, Assistant US Attorney Ken Kohl told reporters.
The suspect faces charges including illegal possession of weapons and a destructive device.
Coffman’s ex-wife told AL.com that her former spouse was a big President Trump supporter.
