BURLESON, Texas (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted three teens accused in a failed attempt to ignite an explosive at an under-construction church in Burleson.
Prosecutors in Dallas say all three suspects are from Burleson: 19-year-old Dayton Lee Calaway, 18-year-old Michael Philip Plaisted Junior and 18-year-old Jered Michael Ragon.
The arrests happened earlier this month.
Each is charged with one count of possession of an unregistered firearm, a destructive device.
If convicted, the maximum penalty is ten years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
All three are expected to appear before a magistrate.
Prosecutors say the suspects had a "Molotov cocktail" type device.
Nobody was hurt.
Burleson Police Commander Chris Havens told the Cleburne Times-Review that the teens identified themselves as radical Christian activists who oppose government and organized religion.
