Man charged with leaving explosives at gas station

August 1, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Court documents say a man found with bomb-making materials in his Sioux Falls home during a search is suspected of placing an explosive device at a gas station.

Forty-three-year-old Mark Einerwold was arrested July 17 on charges of burglary and possessing a destructive device. Additional charges, including possessing explosives with intent to destroy property, accuse Einerwold of placing explosives at the Get ’n Go station July 2.

The Argus Leader says a station customer twice kicked the device away from a gas meter before any explosion could occur.

Prosecutors said in court that authorities found a manifesto that included threats toward law enforcement and the government at Einerwold’s residence. He’s scheduled in court later this week. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
