SOUTHBURY, Conn. (WTIC and AP) – A Connecticut man who police say detonated a pipe bomb on a rural road has been sentenced to more than four years in prison.

A judge sentenced 34-year-old Brian Fluman, of Southbury, to 57 months in prison Wednesday after he pleaded guilty to possession of a destructive device by a convicted felon.

Police were called to Woodbury in April 2017 after receiving reports of loud explosions. Investigators found a burned and blackened road and pieces from a pipe bomb.

Police obtained a search warrant for Fluman’s home and recovered pipes with end caps, a fuse, and electric blasting cap and a semi-automatic rifle.

Fluman had previous felony convictions for larceny, burglary and narcotics possession.
