Greene County Man Gets 4 Years For Explosives Found In Home
(Springfield, MO) — A Greene County man gets four years in prison after admitting in court that he had homemade explosives in his home. Fifty-three-year-old William Rush was sentenced earlier this month after pleading guilty to two counts of unlawful possession of an explosive weapon. Investigators say say a fire marshal with the Springfield Fire Department went to Rush’s home in March after a witness reported seeing improvised explosive devices inside. During a search of the home, an improvised explosive device was found in plain view in the living room. Authorities said another device was found in the kitchen, along with two containers of gunpowder found in Rush’s bedroom.
