McNamara Building

A 42-year old engineering grad student from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula was arrested Thursday morning for allegedly placing a metal cash box with explosives outside the McNamara federal building in downtown Detroit on Feb. 26, which houses the FBI. The bomb never went off.

The FBI said suspect Gary John Mikulich of Kingsford, Mi., a student at Michigan Tech University,  had “long complained about the FBI generally, and the Detroit in particular.”

Authorities alleged that Mikulich and his vehicle matched the description of an individual who purchased a Husky brand tool bag and a GE timer used in the crime.

Authorities said he purchased the items at a Home Depot store in the rustic town of Iron Mountain, Mi., in the Upper Peninsula.

He was scheduled to make a court appearance on Friday in Marquette, Mi.
