Federal Weapons Charges for Biddeford Man Accused of Taking Loaded Gun to Batman Movie
A man from Biddeford accused of having an arsenal of guns in his car and home, who told police he went to the new Batman movie with a loaded weapon, remains in the York County Jail on 50-thousand dollars bail.
State and federal authorities are trying to determine what 49-year-old Timothy Courtois was planning to do with all of the weapons.
Courtois was stopped by a state trooper on the turnpike Sunday morning.
Authorities say other drivers reported a speeding Mustang with its flashers on. We're told Courtois was clocked at 112 miles-per-hour.
After he was arrested, police say they discovered an AK-47 assault weapon, four handguns and several boxes of ammunition in car.
They searched his home in Biddeford and say they found several more guns, including a machine gun, and thousands of rounds of ammunition.
Police say they also found stories about the Colorado shooting in Courtois's car and say he admitted to police he'd gone to the Batman movie in Saco Saturday night with a loaded gun in his backpack.
He also reportedly told authorities that he was on his way to Derry, New Hampshire to shot a former employer.
Courtois appeared in court today on initial charges of having a concealed weapon and speeding.
The FBI and ATF have also been called in to investigate. More charges could be filed.
