The documents were filed in late September, but not made public until October 22.

Treisman drew attention on May 28 when employees of Fifth Third Bank in Kannapolis alerted police to his van, which they believed had been abandoned in their parking lot, the documents said.

Investigating, police saw through the windows six firearms and a canister of Tannerite, an explosive material.

A search of the vehicle revealed just over $500,000 in cash, as well as books about bomb making, improvised weapons and Islam. Prosecutors said they believe the money was his inheritance.

He also had drawings of swastikas and planes crashing into buildings, the court documents said.

Police found two further guns when Treisman showed up in his car to ask after his van, which had been towed away.

Searching his cellphones and laptops, the FBI found thousands of pornographic videos and images of children, the documents said.

A search of his internet history, including his online handles of "AlextheBodacious" and "flindymapper," also found materials suggesting an interest in killing Biden, prosecutors said.
