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.
