According to court filings, the Department of Homeland Security was investigating whether an employee was plotting an attack on senior officials in the agency.
The employee, Jonathan Wienke of Martinsburg, West Virginia, was found with a gun by security officers while he was on the job at agency headquarters on Nebraska Avenue in northwest D.C. two weeks ago, according to the court filings obtained by the News-4 I-Team.
Wienke pleaded not guilty to a gun charge and is awaiting further court proceedings in the case.
But it was more than just a firearm. “A federal agent and security officers also found Wienke had a knife, pepper spray, thermal imaging equipment and radio devices.”
The court filings also showed “probable cause to believe Jonathan Wienke was conspiring with another to commit workplace violence, and more particularly may have been conspiring or planning to commit violence against the senior DHS officials in the building.”
Wienke was discovered during a random employee check. He was asked to undergo further examination where a gun loaded with 5 hollow-point bullets was found. Wienke holds a top secret security clearance.
DHS issued a statement on the situation:
“As previously reported, an individual employed with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was arrested Thursday, June 9, 2016 after security officers discovered a concealed handgun. He was detained, turned over to the Metropolitan Police Department and subsequently arrested. The individual, who worked in a non-supervisory role in the Office of Intelligence and Analysis, has been placed on administrative leave.”
