FBI claims man wanted to bomb Utah police station

A 47-year-old Utah man was arrested Thursday for plotting to blow up a police station and kill police officers with the hope that the attacks would cause an uprising against the government.

U.S. Attorney’s Office of Utah spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch said in a statement Friday evening that police and FBI agents in Tremonton arrested John Huggins on charges of possessing an unregistered destructive device.

Huggins made an initial appearance in federal court late Friday and will stay in custody until a detention hearing Tuesday afternoon, Rydalch said.
