KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A federal grand jury in Kansas City, Kansas, returned an indictment charging a Missouri man with one count of Arson, one count of felon in possession of an explosive, and one count of transportation of explosive materials.
According to court documents, Josiah Lewis, 43, of Grandview, Missouri, allegedly detonated explosives at a business on West 135th Street in Overland Park, Kansas, in attempt to gain access into an automatic teller machine.
The Overland Park Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are investigating the case.
