Fairfield Man To Be Arraigned On Bomb Charges

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut man who claimed he was making a bomb for Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards is facing his first court appearance since being arrested on explosives charges.

Sixty-nine-year-old Joseph Callahan of Fairfield is set to be arraigned on 112 counts of illegal possession of explosives and other charges Wednesday in Bridgeport Superior Court.

Police say Callahan also claimed to have detonation cords for rockets and chemicals used in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 1995 bombing of the federal office building in Oklahoma City.

Authorities told the Connecticut Post that they found more than 100 explosive devices in Callahan’s home. Police say Callahan told them he played with explosives as a hobby.

Callahan’s lawyer says Callahan never intended to hurt anyone.
