WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Prosecutors in Delaware say a Millsboro man accused of possessing four homemade bombs and an AK-47 with an altered serial number is facing federal charges.

A federal grand jury returned a superseding indictment Tuesday charging Job Gillette with four counts of possession of an unregistered destructive device and one count each of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a firearm with an altered or obliterated serial number. The indictment alleges that on March 24, Gillette had an AK-47 rifle with an altered serial number, one improvised incendiary device and parts to assemble three more.

U.S. Attorney David Weiss says Delaware is safer because law enforcement ensured that the homemade bombs were never used.
