Possible Hutaree Sympathizer pleads guilty to weapons charges
During that conversation, Graham asked, “Where’s the gun in the car?” and McLeod replied, “In the console.”
Police said McLeod admitted the gun was loaded and that he did not have a valid permit for concealed weapons.
A search of his vehicle also yielded a military-style bulletproof vest, bomb-making materials, and a photo of President Barack Obama. The combination of the materials gave officers concern.
A subsequent forensic analysis of a laptop computer found in his car revealed “information regarding” the Hutaree group, but police could not say if that meant McLeod was tied to the group.
