Missouri man sentenced for pipe bomb case in Kansas


LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — A 32-year-old Missouri man faces more than two years in prison after being convicted of charges stemming from a pipe bomb explosion in Leavenworth.

Simon Nigel Pohl of St. Joseph was sentenced Friday in Leavenworth County court to two years and eight months in prison on charges of criminal use of explosives and possession of methamphetamine.

The Kansas City Star reports that Pohl was arrested in April, along with two other people who were charged after explosive devices damaged two vehicles in Leavenworth on April 18 and May 3. No one was injured.

Joseph Lee Dickey was sentenced to nearly four years, and Amber M. Wood was sentenced to three years in prison.
