BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ A federal grand jury has indicted two Idaho men accused of using Molotov cocktails last month to destroy government vehicles and a private business building in Payette.
The eight count indictment was issued Wednesday against 48-year-old David Vonbargen, of Fruitland, and 21-year-old Donovan Bolen, of Payette.
They face a range of charges, from conspiring to use explosive devices in a federal crime to possession of stolen firearms.
Federal prosecutors say the charges stem from the theft of guns from a pawn shop in Fruitland May 27.
The indictment alleges Vonbargen and Bolen used Molotov cocktails to destroy a U.S. Department of Agriculture truck and all-terrain vehicle, as well as a building owned by Western Core Company Inc.
If convicted on the charges, each faces at least 35 years in prison.
