    (CNN) -- Federal authorities on Thursday charged a Marine reservist in connection with 2010 shootings at the Pentagon and the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

    Although he has been charged with only two shootings so far, the criminal complaint links him to three other shootings at military recruiting stations.

    Additional charges could be forthcoming, said Neil MacBride, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

    According to a criminal complaint, law enforcement officers searched the residence of Yonathan Melaku and found numerous documents concerning bomb-making and explosives.

    Melaku was arrested last week after he was found trespassing in Arlington National Cemetery before dawn. A car he pointed authorities to set off a bomb scare near the Pentagon.
