Search of Colo. officer's home yields explosives
The Associated Press
Last week, Gary Perman, 61, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of unlawful possession of an explosive device and to a misdemeanor charge of failure to obtain an explosives permit.
He was given a 2 year deferred sentence. He later resigned from his position with the Fort Collins police bomb squad, where he had been since 1974.
Police documents show that officers in June and July found several explosives at Perman's home, including explosives materials like blasting caps and fuses.
It is unclear where Perman acquired such materials, but documents do say he stored items for the bomb squad in his garage.
Perman's plea deal also bars him from having explosive devices or acting as an explosives consultant or trainer.
According to court documents, he will be eligible to withdraw the guilty plea during a court appearance in August 2008 if he complies with the plea agreement.
