A Herrick man has been jailed since late last week, when he was arrested on bomb charges.
Aaron C. Rhodes, 34, was arrested last Thursday on charges of possession of an explosive or incendiary device, possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The office of Fayette County State’s Attorney Joshua Morrison then filed charges against Rhodes for the incident at his home.
He has been charged with a felony charge of possession of explosives or incendiary devices, a shrapnel-wrapped bomb with a wick, intending to use explosive devices to commit criminal damage to property. That offense is a Class 1 felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison.
Rhodes has also been charged with a Class 3 felony charge of unlawful use of a weapon, that being a bomb that contained an explosive device.
He also is charged with possession of 2.5-10 grams of cannabis, a Class B misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to six months in jail.
His bond has been set at $40,000.
