A 51-year-old Colorado man facing explosives charges in Sidney had his case bound over to District Court following a preliminary hearing Tuesday.
Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub says Edgar Almond of Loveland is charged with possession of a destructive device, a class IV felony.
During the hearing Tueday, a sergeant and lieutenant from the Sidney Police Department testified. The court found that it appeared the offense occurred and that there is probable cause to believe that the defendant committed it.
Sidney police say Almond’s wife reported that he’d detonated a bomb in the area and had bomb-making materials in his vehicle in front of her house. After he was arrested outside the home, police searched his van. Officers say they found bomb materials inside.
Almond will have an arraignment hearing in Cheyenne County District Court October 5th (8:30 a.m.) Bond remains set at $50 thousand dollars with a 10% cash provision.
