Citing a report in the Fairfield Citizen, the Daily News reports that Joseph Callahan, pictured, of 1625 Bronson Road, told police of his plans to blow up the Rolling Stones guitarist following his arrest.
As reported on Fairfield Patch, state and federal officials arrested Callahan Monday and charged him with several felonies including manufacturing a bomb following a week-long investigation that was sparked by a report of a burglary at the home.
Authorities took Callahan into custody and spent the majority of the week taking chemicals and weapons out of his home. The home was recently deemed secure by emergency officials, but local authorities are awaiting the results of tests run on the chemicals found in the home.
Police seized 274 guns, numerous pounds of ammunition and several explosives from the home, according to Deputy Police Chief Chris Lyddy. The explosives were described as larger than a firework, with explosive power above an M-80, but below a stick of dynamite.
The Daily News report, again citing NBC Connecticut, has Callahan's lawyer saying his client had been distraught over a divorce and did not plan to detonate a bomb.
Patch will have updates to this story as they become available.
