Man with weapons cache had map pinpointing UW, Seattle U.
The 21-year-old Nevada man arrested after being pulled over in a stolen pickup at the University of Washington yesterday had a map that pinpointed the UW, South Seattle Community College and Seattle University, King County prosecutors alleged in court this afternoon.
The man, Justin Jasper, was ordered held on $2 million as a result of the new information presented by prosecutors.
Prosecutors also allege that Jasper had anti-government literature in the truck, along with a rifle, shotgun, six Molotov cocktails, three knives, a machete and body armor. He’s being held on charges of possessing an incendiary device and possession of a stolen truck and guns.
Prosecutors said they also found a posting on the Internet in which Jasper asked who supported the Brazilian revolution. It promised that: “Somewhere in the Western United States I will make sure that people understand and notice it.”
