Weapons found in Michelle Kolts’ home. HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
Tampa, Florida — Police were called to a Tampa-area home where inside they discovered an arsenal of two dozen metal-stuffed pipe bombs and fuses as well as a cache of guns and other weapons.
Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said “it’s frightening to think of the catastrophic damage and loss of life” that could have been done with the weapons.
Twenty-seven-year-old Michelle Kolts who works at this maintenance supply business was arrested early Friday morning. She’s charged with 24 counts of making a destructive device with intent to harm. There were also books and DVDs focused on murder, mass killings, domestic terror and bomb-making found in the home. Kolts lives with her parents, who turned her in.
“Every law enforcement officer in the world always says if you see something say something,” Chronister said. “I couldn’t applaud these parents more for having the courage to do just that.”
Michelle Kolts: Woman Had 24 Pipe Bombs, ‘Consumed by Columbine,’ Cops Say
Michelle Kolts is the Florida woman who is accused of building and possessing 24 pipe bombs that could have claimed “significant lives” and done “catastrophic damage,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has said. Kolts, 27, is a resident of Wimauma, Florida, a community just south of Tampa.
Online records show that Kolts was arrested at her job. Kolts was then taken to her home where she admitted to making the bombs, according to Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister. Her home is located along the 5000 block of Jagged Cloud Drive. Kolts was taken into custody just before midnight on October 3. Those records show that Kolts is being held on a bond of $180,000. Among her possessions was a copy of the white supremacist book, “The Turner Diaries.”
Kolts is facing charges of 24 counts of making a destructive device which is a second-degree felony. If found guilty on all charges, Kolts could face 15 years in prison.

After all of these Florida Man stories it’s nice to see a Florida Woman get in on the act.

A rarity, but something for law enforcement to keep in mind.
It makes me wonder just what she was targeting with that stash. She certainly wasn’t building up all of those weapons as a hobby.

She is just one of millions.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

Sorry. Doesn’t pass the smell test for me. Every pistol and long gun in the photo had an orange tip on the barrel. That means it’s a toy and not real.
A bunch of pipes with caps screwed on doesn’t make them bombs. And living in the heart of redneck village, I can tell you that people here that aren’t gun toters have more weaponry than that.

27? Looks more like 47. Must be some really bad meth.
