Jackson County Man Charged With Possessing Explosives

A Jackson County man has been charged with possession of an explosive device with intent, after the sheriff’s office says he placed a homemade explosive device near a woodshed owned by his neighbor this past weekend. 45 year old Aaron Hinke of La Motte was arrested Sunday night. Court records say that Hinke placed the device near the woodshed at around 3 pm, but it wasn’t reported to authorities until almost four hours later. Officials from the state fire marshal’s office were called to the scene and were able to defuse the device. Following his arrest Hinke admitted to making the explosive device and placing it near the woodshed. It’s not known at this point why he committed the crime.
