Yeah, I know that there are no ex-Marines, but I think you’ll agree with me on this story sent to us by TSO Denver’s ABC 7 News;
Sandberg allegedly told an undercover federal agent he was willing to trade homemade fragmentation bombs for cocaine, according to the affidavit from the undercover investigation. Sandberg allegedly said that the bombs had a 20-meter “kill zone” and were laced with shrapnel and stainless steel BBs.
A search of his home by local police and federal ATF agents last week revealed 31 improvised bombs, a shotgun, a handgun, a rifle and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, authorities said in the hearing on Tuesday.
A former Marine, Sandberg claimed that he served in “Special Ops Recon SS Marine Corps” and was deployed to war zones in Iraq, Somalia, Africa and Pakistan, according to the affidavit. However, his official military personnel file indicates that he was discharged after two years of service in 2005 as a lance corporal, and he was never deployed.
I guess he was doing his best Eddie Murphy impression. I’ll make a guess that his departure from the Marine Corps wasn’t amicable either, seein’s how he left in 2005 with no deployments. There were plenty of opportunities to deploy in those years, unless he was a sergeant major of course. I know he’s guilty because the only photos I can find of him are shirtless and talking on his cell phone in his driveway – in the classic “Cops” take down mode.
