A Norfolk man accused of having a “bomb making kit” in his bedroom has been remanded in custody.
Kane Woodward, 23, of Albion Road, Great Yarmouth, appeared before the town’s magistrates court via video-link today.
Woodward was charged with possession of gunpowder for unlawful purposes after police found a “pipe-bomb making kit” in a plastic tub inside his wardrobe on September 7.
He was also charged with possession of a stun gun and possession of more than £1,000 worth of cannabis with intent to supply.
Officers found 137.3g of the Class B drug on Woodward’s person and in his vehicle on September 6.
At court this morning, there was no application for bail but Woodward’s solicitor said there is likely to be one at the next hearing at Norwich Crown Court on September 30.
Woodward, who has been remanded in custody until the next hearing, has not yet entered pleas to the charges.
To progress with the explosives charge under the Explosive Substances Act, the Crown Prosecution Service needed permission from the Attorney General.
The charge can carry up to a life prison sentence.
