A Bay Area man was ordered Thursday to stand trial for allegedly possessing explosives and growing marijuana, according to local news reports.
William Myles Harrell of Brisbane, Calif., was charged for having 145 pounds of explosives in his home and running a small pot growing operation, the Bay Area News Group reported. Prosecutors filed charges against the 46-year-old-man that include drug sales and child endangerment, according to the newspaper group.
On Oct. 1, police officers arrived at Harrell's home to investigate a fight with his former girlfriend and discovered the explosives, $36,100 in cash and about 80 grams of marijuana, according to the Bay Area News Group.
Authorities said the commercial-grade Iremite brand explosives were "stable," but could have been set off in an unforeseen situation like a house fire, NBCBayArea.com reported.
In Moss Beach, Calif., authorities also found a trailer containing a pot growing operation connected to Harrell, according to the Bay Area News Group.
