Man arrested in stolen truck carrying weapons, explosives, body armor in Seattle
NBC News ^ | July 4, 2013 | M. Alex Johnson

Posted on 07/04/2013 8:47:24 PM PDT by Zakeet

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."

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."

Tea Party no doubt, that way they can still [ass the amnesty bill and say Tea Party people are crazy.

Sounds to me like a setup.

No, no, no, no, no! It proves "anthropogenic global warming" once and for all! Settled science! This is the last missing fact! Shut down the laboratories! Turn off the computers! We now know for a solid fact "anthropogenic global warming" is true!"

Especially laws against gasoline. Maybe limit the gallons that containers may hold. How about 1 (one)?

“carrying multiple explosive devices” says the reporter, but then, “multiple incendiary devices, which police described as “very well made” Molotov cocktails”

Incendiary devices are not explosive devices, no matter how well made. More incompetent or intentionally misleading reporting.

http://www.publicrecords.com/people-search-records/justin-jasper-in-nevada

All I could find was two Justin Jasper’s in Nevada. One has a “C” middle initial. The one with no middle initial is in Las Vegas. Not sure if this is the guy.

http://www.linkedin.com/pub/dir/JUSTIN/JASPER/us-412-Las-Vegas,-Nevada-Area

http://www.mylife.com/jackthenarrator

Mylife profile has the Las Vegas Justin Jasper as 22.

Extremely possible that it could be another guy who just stays under the radar.

Again, take this with a grain of salt. It’s a cursory web search and the results could be wrong.

Just a guess, but if he were hanging around the UW campus it might indicate he’s an animal rights activist protesting some kind of research - the UW is involved in a lot of medical research.

Also, he apparently is a fan of the DARE anti-drug program.

Another democrap POS who wants to keep anti-gun delirium at the highest levels possible. If I didn’t have much ammo on hand would I wait for prices to get back to old prices before buying? Absolutely not. Rats are determined to keep their backdoor gun control on track and they don’t care if they have to gun down a bunch of innocent people every six months to do it.

I laugh that Patty Murray was selected to be chairperson of the Senate Budget Committee.

She was a P.E. major in college. That’s right — physical education! That is the easiest major anyone could possibly ever find in college.

She was once told by a state representative that she couldn’t make a difference because she was just a “mom in tennis shoes”. The phrase stuck, SO THEY MAKE HER A SENATOR!

She took the easiest path possible in college. She ran for the senate with a silly slogan and WON! Now she chairs the budget committee?

No wonder our nation is in the shape it’s in. Too many idiots are voting for too many clueless P.E. college majors.

“he’s an animal rights activist”

That’s what I was thinking too. Many years ago they burned down some agricultural(?) building. Seeing as it is summer break, perhaps he was doing something now to keep casualties low. (You know, kind-hearted animal lover and all).

Just had another thought. Perhaps the UW was just a place to hang out for a bit (another college-age buddy with an apartment, etc.). Then wait for next week for some 90+ degree weather and head over the pass and toss some of those cocktails into the tall brush.

End of August might get away with doing it in Seattle Suburbia. (Whenever I mention the possibility of a suburban wildfire my neighbors think I’m nuts!)

UWPD, SPD, FBI Investigating Nevada Man Arrested With Armor, Guns And Incendiaries

Written by Sergeant Sean Whitcomb on July 4, 2013

At 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3, 2013, officers from the University of Washington Police Department observed a pickup truck on campus that was reported stolen out of the State of Montana. Officers conducted a high-risk traffic stop on the truck in the 3400 block of Sand Point Way NE. Officers took the driver of the truck, a Nevada resident, into custody without incident and booked him into King County Jail.

A subsequent search of the truck revealed a stolen scoped rifle, stolen shotgun, suspected incendiary devices and body armor. University of Washington police requested assistance from the Seattle Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which have joined the investigation.

At this point, there does not appear to be any threat to the University of Washington Community. This is an on-going criminal investigation.

I was thinking on the 4th of July, he had a bag of Black Cats, Roman Candles, highway flares, and a safety vest, along with a couple of guns he took down off the rear window rack when he traveled out of state, and a 5 gal can of gas, so he didn’t have to fill up in Washington.

SNIPPET: “Jasper previously lived in Las Vegas, where records show he had no criminal history.

He does appear to leave a digital footprint which includes a blog with anti-government sentiments and a video posted a few days ago with no sound, only him smiling at a desk burning a $5 bill.”

Good links posted in the last several posts.

What is interesting is a cause Justin Miles Jasper champions is the revolution or at least protesters in Brazil.

But those protests are actually relatively recent, came to the fore in the past 2-3 weeks, from June 15th or later which coincided with the Soccer Confederations Cup in Brazil.

But yet, Jasper was at the home “alone”(?) of Henderson the trucker for about 11 days. Was he reading about this on the web? Or could it have been in his mind prior and that deals with the Rainforest(?)

And then, Syria. I would be led to believe if Jasper speaks about the revolution there, he most likely would be siding with the Rebels. Some strange notions.

Odd to hit it off with a trucker but we don’t know exactly how. As a hitchhiker? And then the Trucker, Henderson, allowing a stranger to stay at his home with his guns as well? Truck and camper?

And from the Seattle Times:

“Jasper had a long list of gripes about topics ranging from the chemical industry to genetically altered foods to voting rights, Henderson said. “

http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2021338976_uwgunsarrestxml.html

I even have friends who talk about “gmo” foods. Still, all this is rather different.

Guilty Plea from Nevada Man Arrested in Seattle with Stolen Truck, Weapons, and Homemade Explosives
Truck and Weapons Reported Stolen by Butte, Montana Man

U.S. Attorney’s Office
November 26, 2013

Western District of Washington

A 22-year-old man who was arrested in July 2013 by University of Washington Police in a stolen truck with stolen firearms, body armor, and gasoline incendiary devices pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in Seattle, announced U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan. JUSTIN MILES JASPER pleaded guilty to transportation of a stolen vehicle, possession of a stolen firearm, and possession of destructive devices. He is scheduled for sentencing by U.S. District Judge Ricardo S. Martinez on February 20, 2013.

JASPER was arrested on July 3, 2013 near the UW campus in Seattle. He was driving a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 pick-up truck with Montana plates. The truck had been reported stolen by the owner in Butte, Montana. Inside the truck police found a Stevens Model 311A double-barrel 12-gauge shotgun with no serial number, and a Mauser Model 1895 bolt-action rifle. Both guns had been stolen from the same owner as the truck. According to the plea agreement, the truck also contained six destructive devices commonly referred to as Molotov cocktails.

Under the terms of the plea agreement, both the prosecution and defense will recommend a sentence of three years in prison and three years of supervised release. Both sides will recommend that Judge Martinez require mental health counseling while JASPER is on supervised release and will recommend the Bureau of Prisons place JASPER at a facility with mental health treatment while he is incarcerated.

The case is being investigated by the FBI, the UW Police Department, and the Seattle Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Todd Greenberg.
