A man from Biddeford accused of having an arsenal of weapons in his car and home and going to the new Batman movie in Saco with a loaded gun in his backpack is now facing federal weapons charges.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says 49-year-old Timothy Courtois is charged with making a false statement while buying a firearm and two counts of possession of firearms by an unlawful user of controlled substances.
Courtois was arrested after reportedly speeding on the Maine Turnpike Sunday.
Officials say he had six guns, ammunition and newspaper clippings about last week's deadly Colorado theater shootings in his car.
They say they also found a synthetic form of marijuana, known as K-2.
Courtois reportedly told police he was going to New Hampshire to shoot a former boss.
Federal prosecutors say the investigation into Courtois has now revealed he allegedly told workers at Cabela's in Scarborough that he wasn't a drug user when he bought a rifle there, even though he was using marijuana and K-2.
Courtois bought the gun the same day as the Colorado shooting.
