Idaho Falls Citizen Journalism

A man who allegedly built a bomb capable of demolishing the Nederland Colorado police station in order to avenge the vigilante murder of a fellow member of a 1970s era hippie gang will plead guilty to an attempted bombing charge.

Ansberry, intent on avenging his buddy’s death, left his home and traveled to Salmon, Idaho, where on July 20 he bought Haxamine tablets at Murdoch’s Home and Ranch Supply store. He constructed an improvised explosive device with a cell phone, a silicon control rectifier attached by wires to a 9-volt battery, powders, and a Mason jar containing a small automotive light bulb and Hexamethylene Triperoxide Diamine. Hexamine tablets are precursor chemicals for the HMTD. He placed the bomb inside a backpack along with four plastic bags of powder that were later determined to be explosive material.
