Man charged in arms case had map of Army post, U.S. says

January 27, 2010

KABUL SEOUL, South Korea — LOS ANGELES — - The federal government says a man accused of keeping an arsenal in a New Jersey motel room had a map of the U.S. Army's Fort Drum base in upstate New York. The U.S. attorney's office in Newark on Tuesday charged 43-year-old Lloyd Woodson of Reston, Va., with a weapons offense. He was hit Monday with several state weapons charges after his arrest in Branchburg., N.J. Court papers do not say whether he was believed to be planning an attack on Fort Drum or anywhere else. Woodson served for a time in the Navy in the 1980s or 1990s, but it was not immediately clear whether he has any connection to the fort. The government papers say he was convicted of a weapons offense in 1997 in New York.
