A 47-year-old Utah man has been arrested on allegations he was plotting to kill police officers and bomb a police station to instigate an uprising against the government, the Associated Press reports.

The FBI said John Huggins, who was arrested Thursday, is expected to return to federal court Tuesday after he was charged with possessing an unregistered destructive device.

Huggins faces up to 10 years in prison.

The investigation began on a tip that Huggins had buried bombs around the city of Ogden, which turned out to be true. But investigators said Huggins threatened to blow up the Tremonton Police Department with the intention of assassinating two police officers before the bombing.

The AP wrote that Huggins said be believed the attack would trigger an uprising against the government.

Osama bin Laden’s former secretary won’t be able to question FBI agents and witnesses during his resentencing, Bloomberg reports.

U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan on Tuesday denied the request of Wadih el-Hage, who is serving a life sentence for participating in a plot to kill Americans.

“My past experience with my lawyers is that they delay my requests to the last minute, then use that as an excuse not to do it, therefore I am writing this letter,” he told the judge.

The judge said el-Hage can’t handle case alone as long as he has an attorney.

“Given the aggressive representation of this defendant by his able counsel, this court declines to permit hybrid representation,” Kaplan wrote.
