GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) A Grand Junction man who recently completed a sentence for attempting what police called a Columbine-type attack on Palisade High School has been arrested on new bomb-related charges.

Robert Johnson was jailed suspicion of possession of an explosive or incendiary device and informed of the charges on Wednesday.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office says it was alerted by a friend of Johnson's, who told them he was concerned because Johnson allegedly said he planned to make some pipe bombs and was going to kill people.
