    I hope this man is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I hope as he investigation continues they are able to find out where he came from and how he ended up in Salt Lake City.

    This sounds like a sophisticated planning for a future terror attack. Chemicals listed are all dangerous. I hope they get to the bottom of this to find out who else is involved in planning of this scheme.

    It is good that his family are good people who didn't want any part of illegal stuff. Apparently they also knew something about his behavior and intentions. I want to thank them for being good, even though it meant turning this guy in. I think they would be in danger if the police were to release him at this time. Also, I am glad the police took this seriously. Good job LEO's!

    Glad someone had the sense to notify LE and action has been taken to get this man arrested. Now we'll have to watch to see how this plays out.
