JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted a central Missouri man on charges accusing him of making methamphetamine and possessing two bombs.

The office of the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri said Thursday that 22-year-old Zachary Scott Reed of Chamois was indicted on July 15 on charges of making meth and possessing unregistered firearms.

The charges were sealed until Reed was arrested and made an initial court appearance Tuesday.

A lawyer for Reed did not immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.

Prosecutors say he’s accused of possessing two “explosive bombs” containing rusty nails and of making methamphetamine in Osage County. Law enforcement seized the two bombs and a methamphetamine lab during the execution of a search warrant at Reed’s home on Sept. 7, 2014.
