August 29, 2018

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A Little Rock man has been federally charged for more than a dozen homemade bombs authorities discovered buried in his yard.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that 47-year-old James Huff Jr. was charged Monday with possession of a firearm and possession of unregistered firearms. He’s been jailed since his May 7 arrest.

Authorities report seizing 14 pipe bombs from Huff’s home and two other bombs discovered the previous week at the home of his ex-girlfriend, Angella Poole. Authorities also seized a shotgun from Huff, who had been on probation for about six months after pleading guilty to drug charges.

Poole told law enforcement May 1 that Huff was harassing her. She said her landlord found a stick of dynamite at her house that morning.

Huff will stand trial Sept. 24.
