When police entered Joseph C. Callahan's Bronson Road home last week, he freely discussed the array of potentially explosive chemicals he had collected in his house, according to warrant for his arrest.
"That's the chemical used in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing," police said he explained to officers dispatched to the 1625 Bronson Road home Oct. 1.
Then he pointed to vats that he said contained the same kind of chemicals used in the Oklahoma City bombing, according to the arrest warrant affidavit made public Tuesday.
Callahan also said he was making a bomb for rocker Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, according to the warrant, which allegedly was in the garage next to the spray tank. Callahan couldn't remember if he had attached a fuse to it yet, the warrant says.
But, he claimed he never meant to hurt Richards. He insists it was just a gift.
Explosive devices, more than 250 guns and tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition were found at a Bronson Road house, and authorities closed off the street.
Police inventoried and seized 274 firearms from the home on Wednesday, said Deputy Chief of police Chris Lyddy.
