A Frankfort man is facing charges related to possessing explosive devices and marijuana, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Kerry B. Harvey's office.
Joshua D. Logan, 30, appeared in federal court Wednesday. He's charged with possession of a destructive device not registered in the national firearms registration and transfer record; making a firearm (destructive device) without proper authorization; and the manufacture, distribution, or possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.
Police arrested Logan on Friday, the release said.
Officers searched Logan's house after a Franklin County Deputy Sheriff learned Logan might have been involved in growing and distributing marijuana; the investigation led state police officers to find four explosive devices in Logan's basement, chemicals and materials commonly used to make and detonate explosives, and 34 marijuana plants, the release said.

An affidavit from an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives unit alleges that Logan admitted to a state police officer in June that he had made destructive devices and detonated them in his mother's back yard.
