House Bombs

An ex-air traffic controller facing federal charges for allegedly planting home-made bombs at several Grand Junction homes could get a lot of prison time if convicted.

Robert Burke is accused of planting the devices outside the homes of four co-workers and a Federal Aviation Administration official.

He entered a not-guilty plea yesterday.

The 54-year-old faces five counts of possession of an unregistered destructive device.

He also faces one count of property damage by use of explosives and one count of possession of a dangerous weapon in committing a crime of violence.

All of the counts carry penalties of prison time ranging from ten to 30 years and a $250,000 fine each.

Burke was arrested April 5th in Orem, Utah, after he called reporters in Colorado who told authorities.
