A search warrant served by the New Jersey police and the FBI on Saturday turned up cache of assault weapons and chemicals used to make bombs at a New Jersey doctor’s home, authorities said.
Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli, in a statement provided to the Los Angeles Times by the Associated Press, said 60-year-old Robert Rivera of Ridgewood faces half a dozen charges including recklessly creating a risk of widespread injury or damage, unlawfully possessing a destructive device, and possession of an assault firearm.
Rivera is being held on $1-million bail. No other details of the cache were given.
Rivera, who authorities say is unemployed, apparently has had ties to the Occupy Wall Street movement. In a Bloomberg news story last year, Rivera was photographed and quoted as crediting the youth for standing up for their beliefs.
