LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man arrested in connection to two explosions in Madison, Indiana, now faces federal charges.

David Theiring, age 37, is charged with possession of a pipe bomb and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He is suspected of setting off a bomb across the street from the Madison Police Department on March 6. He's also accused in connection with another blast that occurred outside a judge's home.

For the federal charges, Theiring faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count.

"Striking fear into the heart of a community will not be tolerated," said United States Attorney Josh Minkler, according to a news release. "Those who use violence directed at the criminal justice system or any of its members will be held strictly accountable."
