Justin Miles Jasper arrested in stolen truck carrying weapons,explosives,body armor in Seattle.


Seattle is a major coastal seaport city and the seat of King County, in the U.S. state of Washington.

The FBI and Seattle authorities were investigating a Nevada man who was arrested after he was spotted on the University of Washington campus in a stolen truck carrying multiple explosive devices, stolen firearms and body armor, police said Thursday.

The man was arrested a few blocks away after a police pursuit near Seattle Children's Hospital late Wednesday, said John Vinson, chief of the University of Washington police.

He gave no further details of the pursuit, but he described the arrest as "high-risk."

Justin Miles Jasper was arrested early Thursday and was being held without bail in the King County jail on suspicion of possessing an incendiary device.

Jail records gave no age or hometown for Jasper, but Vinson said the suspect was 21 years old and from Nevada.

Vinson said investigators "have no idea what his intentions are."

Campus police first encountered the man Tuesday when they found him sleeping in the truck, Vinson said. A records check turned up empty, so the man was sent on his way.

Wednesday morning, the truck showed up as having been stolen in Montana, police said, and when it was spotted on campus about 10:30 p.m. (1:30 a.m. Thursday ET ), officers gave pursuit.

The man was arrested at an address that is a few hundred yards from Seattle Children's Hospital, police said. Inside the truck, investigators found a stolen rifle with a scope attachment, a stolen shotgun, body armor and multiple incendiary devices, which police described as "very well made" Molotov cocktails.

Asked how many devices were in the truck, Vinson said, "Multiple ... (but) less than 10."

Authorities said they believed there was no longer any threat to the university community, but they said the FBI had joined what they called a "very active criminal investigation."

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
