Arrests made in June car bombing

Two Washington men were arrested on charges related to a car bombing in June. The men allegedly manufactured a bomb and placed it under the passenger side of a vehicle. The bomb was detonated at 4:45 a.m. The bomb did not cause a fire and no one was injured. However, there was a gas leak when emergency crews responded to the scene. The car had not been driven for three days prior to the explosion.

According to neighbors, the home where the men were arrested had been a problem in the community for a long time. They were reportedly happy to see the police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives at the residence when the arrests were made. Authorities used a robot to search the home. The streets in the area were blocked while authorities executed their federal search warrant. After hours of searching the home, the streets were reopened.

The two men allegedly involved in the bombing face federal charges. A 45-year-old was charged with possession of explosives by a prohibited person and a 31-year-old faces possession of a firearm by a prohibited person charges.

Cases that involve local and federal authorities are often complex legal matters. A criminal defendant in this situation often seeks the advise of an attorney with experience in federal court. An attorney may be able to help them by finding witnesses to attest to their innocence of the crimes they are accused of committing or raise doubt that they are responsible for the bombing. Because no one was hurt, an attorney may be able to negotiate a reduced sentence for the men who are accused in this matter.
