Florida woman shopped for bomb supplies at a local Walmart — then tried to blow up the store

Published

on

Emily Stallard, 37, of Tampa, Florida, reportedly compiled bomb-making materials while visiting a local Walmart and then tried to blow up the store.

Stallard built what appeared to be a homemade explosive in a mason jar filled with nails, denatured alcohol, and a candle, according to WFLA. She was reportedly roaming around the store for an hour with her child in tow. A security guard and an off-duty police officer intervened when they saw her attempt to light a candle, presumably to ignite the device.

Stallard has since been charged with several felonies, which included attempted arson of a structure, fire bombing, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, child abuse and battery on a law enforcement officer.

“This woman had all the supplies she needed to cause mass destruction at her disposal,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement.

Stallard’s bond has been set at $8,500.

MSNBC host Joy Reid couldn't help but note that this man was previously the United States National Security Advisor in charge of relaying serious threats to the president.

According to Flynn's lawyer, the pledge that he filmed closes with "where we go one, we go all," which is the motto of the group QAnon. But the lawyer said that the oath wasn't what Flynn was taking while raising his right hand for the video. Flynn also added #QAnon to his Twitter profile and began posting QAnon memes.
