Fort Benning Solider Faces Explosives Charges

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - An Army Ranger from Fort Benning has been acccused of hiding explosives near his home and lying to investigators about it.

Stuart Adcock was arrested Thursday by federal agents and will
receive a preliminary court hearing next week.

An agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said he received a tip this month from an informant who
said he had seen Adcock with a fragmentation grenade.

The investigator said Adcock told the informant that he also had other
grenades, explosives and flash-bang grenades at his Columbus home.

Adcock denied those allegation during an interview with federal
agents.

But authorities said they found a fragmentation grenade, two flash-bang grenades and a military flare in the woods behind
his apartment.
