 U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Lugar announced the 30 month sentence on Wednesday. The sentence also carries three years of supervised release upon the completion of the prison term. 

Court documents in the case say law enforcement searched the home of 27-year-old Dylan Orr last April after learning two photos of pipe bombs were sent to a third party from Orr’s phone. The images showed small BB’s attached to the outside of the devices.

Law enforcement found two six-inch pipes in Orr’s home, one had BB’s on it. Authorities also found four end caps, explosive powder and components prosecutors say could be converted into a destructive device. Court documents say Orr was not registered to possess the materials. 

Orr pleaded guilty to one count of possession of an unregistered destructive device last November.
