A man linked to a pipe bomb that was detonated in Woodbury in April has been sentenced to 57 months, or nearly five years, in prison after pleading guilty to one count of possession of a destructive device by a felon, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Connecticut State Police obtained two search warrants for a home on Greenwich Drive in Southbury and a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse as a result of an investigation into a pipe bomb detonated in Woodbury on April 15.
Various state police troops, the state police emergency services unit, fire and explosives unit and the FBI executed the search warrants on Thursday at 4:05 a.m.
Brian Fluman, 34, of Southbury, was charged with one count of possession of an assault weapon and one count of manufacturing of bombs as a result of the search and seizure. He was sentenced Wednesday to 57 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release.
Fluman, a convicted felon, was also charged with breach of peace, criminal possession of a firearm and reckless endangerment.
He has been detained since July 26.
