PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle fishing boat
captain has admitted to making pipe bombs and throwing them at
dolphins to scare them away from his lines.

Fifty-year-old Garry Alvin Key of Panama City pleaded guilty to
two federal changes Thursday in U.S. District Court.

He could face up to 10 years in prison for possession of an
explosive device by a convicted felon and one year for attempting
to take a marine mammal.

Sentencing is set for March 25 in Panama City.

Federal prosecutors says he was arrested in August after state
conservation officers received a tip he was making the bombs to
kill dolphins.
