Glenn Neff, National Mall Fireworks Suspect, Had a Turret Mounted on His Jeep (Video)
A few more details have been released by Montgomery County Fire and Rescue about Glenn Neff, the Florida man who was allegedly planning on shooting off fireworks on the National Mall in our nation's capital.
Yesterday, an officer from the Maryland-National Capital Park Police found Neff's red Jeep Cherokee in an isolated part of the Cabin John Regional Park in Bethesda, Maryland, after the park was closed.
Police say not only did they find a large cache of fireworks but also a turret mounted to the top of the Jeep to deploy said fireworks.
According to the Montgomery County Fire Rescue, the Joint Terrorism Task Force was called in after they found the turret, and they safely removed it from the roof of the Jeep.

Fire officials say Neff told police that he didn't intend to hurt anyone and that the "device was made to draw attention to himself and issues he had with the banking industry."
Neff, a 27-year-old Stuart resident, allegedly planned to ignite the fireworks on the National Mall, and fire officials say drug paraphernalia and alcohol were also found in the Jeep.
Neff is currently in custody as officials are figuring out what to charge him with, but we have a video -- courtesy of Montgomery County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Kevin Frazier -- of bomb technicians removing the turret from Neff's Jeep, which you can see below:
We haven't heard back from the Maryland-National Capital Park Police for more details of what happened, but we'll let you know when they get back to us.
