WILLMAR (WJON News) - A Willmar man has been indicted for illegally possessing two explosive devices and a short-barreled shotgun.
U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger announced the indictment of 39-year-old Brian Keith Kohls of Willmar.

If convicted, Kohls faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. He made an initial appearance in U.S. District Court Tuesday and was ordered to remain in custody until a detention hearing on October 20th.
The case has been investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Willmar Police Department, the Minneapolis Police Department, and the St. Cloud Police Department.
