After turning himself in to FBI, “doomsday prepper” Marty Winters is denied bond.
Federal agents raided Winters home this week, armed with a warrant they obtained with information from an undercover informant.
According to the indictment, agents were looking for as many as 50 high-powered AR-15 rifles and several explosive devices buried around the properties.
Agents found less than what they were led to believe they would.
The Winters attorney claims, there were four ‘destructive devices’ purchased by the informant.
That confidential informant told the FBI they would find bombs and dozens of guns at the home.
When Special Agent Dave Couvertier, the FBI’s spokesman, was asked what they had discovered, he declined comment.
“Well, that’s part of the original investigation,” Couvertier said. “But eventually at some point, those issues will be addressed publicly.”
Ellis Faught, Martin Winters attorney claims that:
“And it’s my understanding that no guns were dug up,” Faught said after the hearing. “It was alleged by the government that there were 50 to 60 guns and I’m only aware of five of them that were found and they were found in his house in a safe.”
Federal agents could present more evidence to support claims made by their confidential informant.
