FARMINGTON A man accused of making a series of pipe bombs that were stolen and then scattered in Layton and Roy has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges.
Raymond Bradley Parr, 48, was arraigned in 2nd District Court on Monday on three counts of recklessness with an incendiary device, a second-degree felony. A trial date has not yet been set in the case, court records indicated. A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for Dec. 31.
Parr is accused of making dozens of pipe bombs that were stolen in a storage shed burglary. The bombs turned up at a Layton car wash and in a field behind a Roy convenience store.
One of the accused burglars, Curtis Douglas Beeman, 30, pleaded guilty on Nov. 5 to charges of theft and attempted possession of an explosive device. In exchange, Davis County prosecutors dropped other burglary and explosives charges. A Dec. 21 pre-trial conference has been scheduled for another suspect, Raymond Guzman, 31.
