DETROIT (AP) — Federal authorities say a man has been charged with placing booby traps around a Detroit pot-growing operation that hurt another man.
The U.S. attorney’s office in Detroit announced Friday that 25-year-old Joshua Ragland was indicted this week on four counts, including manufacturing and possessing destructive devices. He faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted.
The Associated Press left a message seeking comment from his defense attorney, Lisa Dwyer.
Prosecutors say a 29-year-old man walked across a lot in September when he heard explosions and felt pain in his foot. He was treated at a hospital.
