CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Officials in New Hampshire say more charges are possible against two convicted tax-evaders.
Elaine and Ed Brown were arrested peacefully yesterday after a months-long standoff at their fortress-like home. They had threatened to resist with violence any attempt to take them into custody. But marhals posed as their supporters to gain access to their home and take them in.
A U.S. Marshals spokesman said booby traps were found in the woods of the Brown compound. Marshals also found weapons, ammunition and homemade bombs inside and outside the house.
The Browns were convicted on federal tax charges in January.
They have been turned over to federal corrections officials to serve prison terms of 63 months.
