Missouri man receives probation in Oklahoma pipe bomb case

The Associated Press - February 14, 2019 1:15 pm

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A 36-year-old Missouri man has been placed on probation after pleading guilty to having a pipe bomb at his former apartment in Oklahoma.
Federal court records in Tulsa show Richard C. Cole received two-and-a-half years of probation when he was sentenced Thursday on one felony count of possession of an unregistered destructive device. Cole faced up to 10 years in prison.
Cole, of Joplin, was charged in August when the landlord of Cole’s former apartment in Afton found an improvised explosive device in a garage after Cole was evicted from the rental.
Authorities later discovered two 1-pound canisters containing “mixed Tannerite,” a binary explosive, two boxes of ammunition, and a pipe bomb in an ammunition container. The explosive device was rendered safe and nobody was hurt.
