Minnesota Man Pleads Guilty to Illegal Possession of an Unregistered Pipe Bomb
Minneapolis (KROC-AM News) - A Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to illegally possessing a pipe bomb.
Prosecutors said law enforcement executed a search warrant at 27-year-old Dylan Orr’s Maplewood residence after discovering photos of two pipe bombs sent from Orr’s phone to a third party. The images showed that there were small BBs affixed to the exterior casing of the pipe bombs.
During the execution of the search warrant, law enforcement discovered two six-inch pipes - one with BBs affixed, 4 end caps, and explosive powder, components that prosecutors said could be readily converted to a destructive device.
Court documents say that Orr did not have a registration to possess these devices from the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record as required by law.
Orr pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of possession of an unregistered destructive device. He will be sentenced at a later date.
