video has been released of a man who police say stands accused of building a chemical weapon inside a Walmart store in Oxnard.
The man wearing all black is initially seen in the security footage from June 18 blending in like any other shopper.
But, authorities say, he didn’t come to the store to shop, but to build a chemical weapon.
Detectives identified the suspect as Martin Reyes. They say he went to the store after conducting research online on how to build a deadly chemical weapon.
Once inside the store, police said the man assembled all of the ingredients from store shelves, which included some kind of electronic appliance.
Police said he used a socket near the stationary section to plug in the appliance, which was then designed to set the chemical weapon off.
