The 70-year-old Alabama man arrested during the Capitol riot is now among 13 people who have been charged federally.

Lonnie Coffman is charged with possession of an unregistered firearm (destructive device) and carrying a pistol without a license. Authorities contend that Coffman’s vehicle contained 11 Molotov cocktail explosive devices and guns.

During the search of the cab of the truck, officers recovered, among other things, one M4 Carbine assault rifle along with rifle magazines loaded with ammunition. Also removed from Coffman’s vehicle were:
11 Mason jars containing an unknown liquid with a golf tee in the top of each jar
Cloth rags
Lighters
All of those items, authorities said, are the components of Molotov cocktails. Based on this discovery, additional personnel were called

He was then detained and a 9 mm Smith &Wesson seized from him, as well as his car keys. Police also took a 22-caliber handgun from his pocket. Neither of the guns were registered, authorities said.

Under later questioning, Coffman told investigators the Mason jars contained melted Styrofoam and gasoline.

An ATF explosive experts said that those two things are an explosive mixture that has the effect of napalm in that it causes flammable liquid to better stick to objects that it hits upon detonation.

Quite a string of offenses this guy has piled up. And the description of homemade napalm bring back memories of sickening images.

1. He'll do some hard time over that.

Could very well die in prison given that he’s 70.

7. I'm still surprised that fire wasn't used as a tactic.

Everyone is very lucky about that.
