Three Men Arrested on Federal Explosives Charges

Cincinnati, OH (Apr 14) – Daniel J. Bancroft, Robert Bancroft, and Paul Zahn, ages 43, 41, and 44 respectively, were arrested for illegally possessing and delivering explosives by a joint FBI and ATF task team. Four additional federal search warrants were executed in Ohio and one in Kentucky stemming from this same investigation.

D. Bancroft of Sidney, Ohio, is charged with illegal possession and transfer of explosives, along with conspiracy to transfer explosives.

R. Bancroft, of Williamstown, Kentucky, and brother of David Bancroft, was charged with the same offenses.

Paul Zahn, of Bainbridge, Ohio, is charged with conspiracy to possess and transfer explosives.

The federal complaint filed during February 2010, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky alleges, “the Bancrofts sold a total of 12 blocks of military C4 explosives at a location in Walton, Kentucky. Zahn is alleged to have conspired with the Bancrofts to obtain and deliver the explosives.”

Arrests for all three were made between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m., Tuesday, April 13.

Local and state law enforcement agencies assisted. They include the Sidney, Ohio PD; Ross County, Ohio Sheriff’s Office; Columbus Division of Fire Bomb Squad; Dayton Police Department Bomb Squad; Williamstown, Kentucky PD; Kentucky State Police; and Boone County, Kentucky Sheriff’s Office.

A complaint is merely an allegation of criminal conduct. All individuals are presumed innocent until convicted.

    I know two of the guys who were arrested. Zahn is not a threat to anyone but he loves living in the woods with his dog and guns so getting this appealed to him. One of the Bancroft brothers easily manipulated Paul into selling or aquiring the stuff to sell. Dan was a crack head that Paul allowed to live with him prior to moving to bainbridge. Dan learned how to manipulate Paul to do things that Paul would not normally do. I know this because I’ve known Paul for over 20 years. I’m still waiting for all the news stories to get their facts straight on this because I’ve read several versions of the tale
