FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Police say a Fairfield man charged with possessing explosives said he had detonation cords for rockets and chemicals used in the bombings of the World Trade Center in New York in 1993 and federal office building in Oklahoma City in 1995.
An arrest warrant also says Joseph C. Callahan claimed to be making a bomb for Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards.
The Connecticut Post reports that the 69-year-old Callahan is free on bond and is to be arraigned Oct. 16 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
Callahan was charged on Monday with 112 counts of illegal possession of explosives, reckless endangerment and manufacture of bombs.
His lawyer, Richard Meehan, said his client never had any intention to make a bomb or to hurt anybody.
Callahan also said he played with explosives as a hobby.
