Alleged Anti-Bank Protester Arrested in Plot to Light Truck Full of Fireworks on Nat'l Mall

"I have figured out how to get rid of the ba---rds.”

A 27-year-old man was caught with a truck full if fireworks near the nation's capital on Monday night. But he wasn't getting ready to put on his own patriotic 4th-of-July show. Instead, the man allegedly was angry with some banks and wanted to draw attention to himself and his grievances:

Glenn Neff, from Florida, was arrested at the Cabin John Regional Park in Bethesda, Md after an officer spotted Neff's red Jeep Cherokee stopped in an isolated area of the park after it was closed, WTTG-TV reports.

The officer confronted Neff and then found found the vehicle was loaded with fireworks and had been fitted with a turret and multiple PVC tubes to be used in order to launch the fireworks.

Police also found drug paraphernalia and alcohol.

The charges against Neff have not been released.

UPDATE:

A Facebbok page allegedly belonging to Neff could offer some insight into who he is. Although it's not frequently updated, it appears to show the ramblings of a delusional man. The Bethesda Patch site reports:

On the Facebook page, Neff lists himself as a resident of Stuart, Fla. and lists his college as Stetson University. He posts his political views as Libertarian and his occupation as “Humanity’s last best hope for freedom.”

In a note marked “An Open Letter To My Friends,” Neff writes,

“I have come to the inescapable conclusion that the bankers at the Federal Reserve engineered this financial crisis on purpose. And ladies and gentlemen, I have figured out how to get rid of the ba---rds.”

In a May status update, Neff wrote,

“HAHA!!!! One down . . . 5999 to GO!! A----les BETTER RUN!”

In a February update, he wrote,

"Notice to the Old World Order: I am coming. I am coming for you and I will spare no one. You have six days left. Make the most of them."
