Cresco Man to Serve 7 Years in Federal Prison for Homemade Bomb

  • Photo
CRESCO, Iowa - A Cresco man was sentenced Monday to seven years in federal prison for possessing a homemade bomb.

Bjorn Luster, 34, pleaded guilty last September to one count of possession of an unregistered firearm, a destructive device.

Law enforcement officers found the destructive device and a container of explosive powder during the execution of a search warrant at Luster's home in January 2013, according to court records. Luster admitted he made the bomb and wrapped it with shrapnel, consisting of BBs and nails, to make it more destructive.

No further information was available in the unsealed records.

U.S. District Chief Judge Linda Reade also ordered Luster to serve a three-year term of supervised release after his prison term.

The case was prosecuted as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, a cooperative local, state and federal program aimed at the enhanced prosecution of gun crimes. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel C. Tvedt and was investigated by the Cresco Police Department, the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
