FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- A West Point man has been charged with three counts of possessing an explosive device.

Court documents say 47-year-old Raymond Bradley Parr had at least 40 pipe bombs in a Clearfield storage unit.

County Attorney Troy Rawlings says it's not clear what the plans were for the bombs.

The storage unit was burglarized and earlier this month the bombs were found in Layton and Roy. The bombs were destroyed by robots. Two men have been charged in that burglary.

Parr is a supervisory marketing director for the 75th Air Base Wing Mission Support Group Services Division. A Hill Air Force Base official says the position is a civilian one.

Parrs defense attorney, Craig Peterson, said he could not comment on the case in great detail. Parr was arrested September 11, but the charges weren't filed until this week.

Parr has a scheduled appearance in 2nd District Court in Farmington on October 3.
