Man arrested with gun at nuclear plant

OAK HARBOR, Ohio - A man trying to enter the Davis Besse nuclear power plant yesterday with a loaded handgun under the seat of his van was charged with two misdemeanor weapons offenses, Ottawa County sheriff’s deputies said.

Horace Makodym, 54, of Parma, Ohio, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and improper transportation of a weapon. He was being held in the Ottawa County Jail in lieu of $8,000 bond.

Mr. Makodym, an unemployed security guard, had applied for a job as a guard at Davis Besse and arrived about 12:30 p.m. yesterday for a scheduled interview. A loaded 9mm handgun he once used as a security guard was found during a routine search of the vehicle. He told a Carroll Township police officer he didn’t believe it was illegal to transport a loaded gun in that manner.

Agents from the FBI, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Toledo Bomb Squad, and a dog trained in detecting explosives from the University of Toledo were summoned after trace amounts of an explosive were detected in the vehicle. A search of the vehicle turned up no explosive materials or other suspicious items, authorities said.
