A Franklin County man was issued weapons-related charges Wednesday after he accumulated several weapons and explosives, and threatened co-workers at a Washington plant, Washington Police announced. Charged with Unlawful Possession, Transport, Manufacture, Repair or Sale of an Illegal Weapon was Shawn Arflack, 35.
According to police, Arflack had threatened co-workers at Stork Fabricators, 525 Vossbrink Drive, for some time, leaving "the entire plant in fear." On Monday, following interviews with employees, police seized weapons and ammunition from Arflack's car parked at the plant, Chief Ken Hahn said.
On Tuesday, police uncovered further information that Arflack had constructed a silencer at work, and removed aluminum shavings from Stork Fabricators to be used in the manufacture of explosives, police said. Upon responding to Arflack's residence on Sawmill Road, police discovered Arflack and another person removing several weapons from the home, and placing them into Arflack's vehicle. Lying on the front seat of the vehicle was the silencer, police said.
