MILWAUKEE WI AUG 30 2008- Bodies through the wood chipper!
It’s a threat police say a security guard made.
Milwaukee police say the man threatened to bomb gang member houses.
They arrested him while he was getting supplies.
Police arrested Robert Leyer at the Farm and Fleet where they say he bought things to make a bomb.
Police say they learned of Leyer’s alleged bomb making plot from one of his employees at a south side security company.
The informant told police Leyer was looking to make bombs and use them to blow up the homes of gang members he claimed had made threats to some of his workers.
Police say he recruited some of his staff members to help.“We realized we had to take immediate action because of the potential threat to human life and destruction that was possible,” MPD Lt. Jason Smith said.
Investigators followed him to the American Science and Surplus Store on Oklahoma. Police say Leyer came to the supply store where he bought test tubes, masks and colored jars…devices he could use to make explosives
They say he then went to the Farm and Fleet on West Lawson and bought pipes, bleach, batteries and shot gun shells.“None of the materials are unusual. They can all be purchased at hardware store. It’s the combination of these materials that can cause problems,” Lt. Smith said.Police arrested him outside the store.
When they searched his car they found books and manuals that described in detail how to make a pipe bomb. Leyer told investigators he wasn’t really intending to carry out with his plans. Friday, one of his employees stood by him.“Whatever the charges, I think he was set up. Employees trying to get back at him bounced checks,” the co-worker said.The story gets even more bizarre.
The informant told police Leyer threatened them saying if police found out, the person would be killed and their body put through a wood chipper.
