NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) - A southern Indiana man charged with detonating pipe bombs near a police station and outside a judge’s home has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison.
U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler announced Friday that federal Judge Tanya Walton Pratt recently sentenced 40-year-old David Theiring to 87 months’ imprisonment on his guilty pleas to two counts of possession of unregistered destructive devices and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
No one was injured during the 2016 bombings, which occurred in Theiring’s hometown of Madison, an Ohio River city about 50 miles northeast of Louisville, Kentucky.
Authorities executing a search warrant at Theiring’s home weeks after the bombings recovered bomb-making materials and two firearms.
A motive for the bombings wasn’t revealed.
