FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A man accused of storing stolen explosives, guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in his Williston home has signed a plea agreement with the government.
Tyler Porter is charged in federal court with five counts, including theft and receipt of explosive materials. He was arrested in May.
Authorities accuse Porter of stealing more than 200 explosives from two companies operating in the North Dakota oil patch by using a cutting torch to open padlocked bunkers. They also allege he had books in his home on how to build explosives.
The agreement calls for Porter to plead guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and theft of explosive materials. He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.
A change of plea hearing has not been set.
