The Associated Press
Police were led to Alan Zaleski Wednesday after a utility company tree cutter spotted what looked like a trip wire across Zaleski's driveway and what looked like an explosive device.
Police say they found booby traps on Zaleski's driveway designed to create loud noises and boards with nails sticking upward, concealed under leaves.
Police say a search of the house turned up several weapons including two machine guns, two grenades, automatic rifles, gun silencers and explosives.
Zaleski has been charged with reckless endangerment. Police say said further charges would be filed when federal and state authorities finish searching the house.
