(CBS/AP) MORRISON, Colo. - Several bomb squads were called to a suburban Denver home Thursday after federal agents arrested a Colorado man accused of trying to trade explosive devices for cocaine or cash, CBS Denver reports.
Authorities executed a search warrant after learning there could be explosives in 35-year-old Richard Sandberg's home. Federal prosecutors said U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents removed multiple explosive devices from the Morrison home and rendered them safe.
Sandberg is charged with possession of a firearm, which includes explosive devices. He is being held without bond pending a detention hearing and preliminary hearing scheduled on Jan. 29.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Sandberg told an undercover officer he is a former U.S. Marine. The affidavit said Sandberg and the officer discussed trading explosive devices for drugs or money, and the officer visited Sandberg's home Tuesday and left with three homemade explosives
