STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) – A man charged with making a bomb had photos of mass murderers and neo-Nazi white supremacy posters at his Stamford house and told authorities he was planning for the end of the world, police said.
The state Department of Health was first called to investigate a wafting odor of animal feces coming from Donald Saturno’s apartment on Vine Street in January. Police were then called and when they responded, they found the apartment outfitted like an armed camp, WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reported.
Authorities said they found what appeared to be a pipe bomb and suspicious chemicals, as well as shotguns, a surveillance system and a fortified tunnel under the backyard.
Shotguns were placed next to all the windows and doors of the basement apartment and explosives were found, according to police.
“They found all kinds of propaganda, they found anti-police propaganda,” Stamford Police Chief Jon Fontneau told Schneidau. “And then they found powders which subsequently proved to be bomb-making material.”
