Nichols admits to helping McVeigh choose materials to construct the bomb, and even helped McVeigh the day before the bombing with building the bomb in the back of the rental Ryder truck. Even though Nichols was charged with his connection to the Oklahoma City bombings, Nichols had denied his involvement for many years. A search of Nichols home after his arrest found that he had blasting caps, guns, and a receipt that showed the purchase of ammonium nitrate that exceeded what an individual would need for personal use for lawn care. In addition, Michael Fortier was charged and sentenced to ten years after law enforcement found out that Fortier knew about McVeigh’s plans for the Oklahoma City bombing, and his failure to report it. Fortier also assisted McVeigh by receiving stolen weapons from Terry Nichols, selling the weapons, and upon McVeigh’s request, giving the money he made off of the stolen weapons to Nichols.
