Danville man waives arraignment, heads for trial in case involving homemade bombs
BRENTWOOD - A Danville man is headed to trial this fall, accused of making bombs in a shed in his mother's backyard.
Mathew Starble, 32, was arrested in February after his mother called police, afraid her son was operating a meth lab in a shed at the Cotton Farms mobile home community.
Police did not find methamphetamines, but seized chemicals used to make the drug, along with chemical reaction bombs.
Starble waived his arraignment Wednesday, according to the Eagle Tribune. He faces two counts of possession of a chemical reaction bomb, each of which carries a penalty of seven-and-a-half to 15 years in state prison. An additional charge of possession of drug paraphernalia was dropped.
Starble is being held on $50,000 cash-only bail at the Rockingham County jail.
Starble's trial is scheduled for October.
