IDAHO FALLS — Bonneville Prosecutor Bruce Pickett said his office will not file charges against two individuals arrested for allegedly making and possessing explosive devices.

Idaho Falls police arrested two males, Randy L. Pierce, 21, and a 17-year-old juvenile whose name has not been released, on Monday afternoon after officers responded to reports of shots fired, according a department release. Both were charged with felony possession/construction/use of a bomb or explosive device.

Joelyn Hansen, a spokeswoman for the IFPD, said the two were allegedly using household cleaners and chemicals to make the devices in plastic containers.

“I don’t know what kind of damage they can cause, but they do make a very loud noise,” Hansen said of the devices.

Pickett said that after his office reviewed the police reports, they did not believe the conduct of the individuals met the requirements of the felony statutes. But that doesn’t mean Pierce and the juvenile will escape charges completely.

“We did refer it back to the (Idaho Falls) city prosecutor,” Pickett said. “It was a dangerous situation and these devices are dangerous, but there are better statutes that apply.”

While the Bonneville County Prosecutor’s Office handles misdemeanor charges for county issues and some smaller cities, larger cities such as Idaho Falls, prosecutes misdemeanors and infractions in their respective jurisdiction.
