Materials and literature about domestic terrorism and mass shootings were also found. The sheriff’s office bomb squad responded and found two dozen pipe bombs, smokeless pistol powder, fused material, 23 different knives, two hatchets, nunchucks, two BB pellet-type rifles, six BB pellet-type handguns, and dozens of books and DVDs about murder, mass killings, bomb-making and domestic terrorism. Each pipe bomb contained nails, metallic pellets, or a combination of both. Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister estimated she had the supplies necessary to kill thousands of Americans.
“It would’ve taken less than 60 seconds per device to add the powder-infused material she already possessed to detonate each bomb,” he said. Kolts worked for a building maintenance and supply company based in Tampa. Previously, in August 2018, an online printing company alerted police that Kolts requested several manifests on anarchists and making bombs but deputies felt comfortable that she wasn’t a harm to herself or others. “She became consumed with the Columbine and Oklahoma killings,” the sheriff said. Authorities said officers were so alarmed Friday by the trove of weapons that they evacuated the home and summoned the agency’s bomb squad. Both parents were in the military.
