Two (Ed and Elaine) Brown supporters now face explosives charges

CONCORD, N.H. -- Two men accused of helping New Hampshire tax evaders Ed and Elaine Brown evade capture have been accused of building explosives to help fight off federal agents.

A new indictment alleges that Jason Gerhard of Brookhaven, N.Y., built pipe bombs. It also accuses Daniel Riley of Cohoes, N.Y., of creating an explosive and building homemade guns, designed as booby traps, to shoot shotgun shells.

The Browns were arrested last fall after refusing to turn themselves in for nearly nine months. They were convicted last January of plotting to evade taxes on nearly $2 million. They maintain there is no law requiring them to pay income taxes.

Riley and Gerhard are two of four supporters of the couple who have been charged with conspiring to interfere with the government's efforts to arrest them and with aiding and abetting the couple. They are scheduled for a joint trial on Jan. 28 with Cirino Gonzales of Alice, Texas, and Robert Wolffe of Randolph, Vt. Gerhard, Gonzalez and Riley also face charges for bringing weapons to the Browns.
