A man faces up to 10 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine for making explosives and illegally having a gun in his South Tulsa Apartment.

41-year-old Richard Carter pleaded guilty in federal court.

FOX23 was the first on the scene in January when the Tulsa Police Department bomb squad and federal agents carried out bomb making materials, explosives, and booby traps from the apartment.

Agents called it one of the most significant cases they've seen in Oklahoma in the last ten years.

Some of the explosives pulled from the apartment were active, which means they could have gone off at any time.

Carter's sentencing is scheduled for July 2nd.

Get him a job working for farmers blowing stumps. He just needs an outlet for his skills.
