By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- A local teacher charged in connection with the riot at the U.S. Capitol allegedly had plans to create an armed militia and had a model of the Capitol in his home.

Those are the latest accusations against Robert Morss of Glenshaw.

They were brought up in a federal court filing as prosecutors argued to keep Morss in jail.

After his arrest, police say they recovered a notebook from his car, with writings and notes entitled "Step by Step To Create Hometown Militia."

They also found guns and a U.S. Capitol Lego set.

Morss had been a substitute teacher in the Shaler School District.
