Sheffield man charged with making bomb is due to stand trial
A Sheffield man is due to appear at court charged with making a bomb.
Matthew Dorain, who was arrested following a bomb alert in Beauchief, has been charged with making an explosive substance for an unlawful purpose.
The 28-year-old, of Cawdor Road, in Arbourthorne, is due to appear at Sheffield Crown Court on July 4.
Police found what they described at the time as a ‘crude improvised explosive device' at a house on Abbey Lane to which they were called on Saturday, March 3 last year.
Dorain was one of three people arrested at the time, but police said no further action had been taken against the other man and a woman, who they said had been eliminated from their enquiries.
The full charge against Dorain is making an explosive substance, namely improvised explosive device, under circumstances as to give rise to a reasonable suspicion that you were not making it for a lawful object.
He was charged under section 4 (1) of the Explosive Substances Act 1883.
