HAGERSTOWN -- The case of a man charged with threatening to detonate explosives at a local mobile home park was transferred to Washington County Circuit Court earlier this month.
Michael Austin Womack, 34, of 1328 Fairchild Ave. in Hagerstown, was charged in October with arson threats, possession of explosives, reckless endangerment and hazardous substances.
The case was filed in Circuit Court on Dec. 16.
A witness alleged on Oct. 28 that Womack was looking at a Web site about building bombs, and detonating chemical-reaction devices at the mobile home park, according to District Court records.
Deputy State Fire Marshal Ed Ernst said he was called to Northaven Mobile Home Park, along Pennsylvania Avenue north of Hagerstown, to assist with an incident in which Womack had just been evicted from a residence in the park.
