A northeast Iowa man is facing charges after police say they found a load of bomb-making materials in his home.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Department announced the arrest of 34-year-old Trevor Satrom this week, although the search warrant at his home in Oran was carried out on February 10.
The search uncovered 30 pounds of black gun powder, numerous steel pipes, several feet of fuses, BBs and shredded metal, a flame thrower, Napalm mix, body armor, plus several guns, rifles, and smoke grenades.
Satrom was taken into custody that day, but was sent to a “locked hospital for treatment,” according to a news release. On March 4, he was transferred to the Fayette County Jail. Investigators are not saying what Satrom may’ve been planning to do with the bomb-making materials, but his computers and other electronic devices were seized and are being examined by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.
The charges Satrom is facing include unlawful possession and/or storage of explosive materials and four counts of unlawful possession of offensive weapons.
