HAYS DAILY NEWS PAGK 21 December 12, 1976 s. Arms Cache Big Enough To Equip « . 200-AAan Army LOS ANGELES (UPD-An arsenal big enough "to equip a 200-man army" found In the Mojave desert was burled by a right wing paramilitary organization that may have planned to overthrow the U.S. government, Sheriff Peter Pitchess said Friday. The eight tons of weapons and explosives found so far "is the largest cache of this type ever found in California and probably the nation," the sheriff said. "We are satisfied that it was placed by a paramilitary organization ... potentially dangerous people," he said. "It could very likely be a group who planned to overthrow our form of government." Donald D. Wiggins, 41, a self-employed foundryman, was arrested Friday at his home in a lower middle class district of Ontario, in neighboring San Bernardino County, on charges of unauthorized possession of destructive devices and machine guns. Another three tons of ammunition and military materiel were discovered buried in drums at his home, deputies said. Wiggins allegedly purchased land under an alias in the Mojave desert 60 miles north of Los Angeles, abouf 25 miles northwest of Lancaster. The children of campers found some ammunition there Sunday, setting off a search that turned up four buried concrete bunkers filled with war materiel, "There is enough equipment to equip a 200-man company of military personnel," Pitchess told a news conference. Sheriff's and Army teams have found tons of rifles, pistols, hand grenades, mortars, bazookas and French, Japanese, German and U.S. machine guns, including powerful ,50-caliber antiaircraft weapons. Also found were land mines, dynamite and other explosives, chemicals and instructions for making napalm and poison gas, smoke grenades, tear gas, medical supplies and food. With the weapdns, both in the desert and those found at Wiggins' home, were stocks of anti-black, anti-Semitic and anti-Communist literature of "the most extreme right-wing leanings," the sheriff said. The sheriff said he could not link the weapons to a specific organization, but there is evidence Wiggins knew the late Wesley Smith, organizer of several fundamentalist Christian, anti-Communist groups, including the California Rangers, described by the state attorney general's office in 1965 as "a secret guerrilla warfare unit." warfare unit."
