A Connecticut convict is facing charges after being busted with illegal explosives, U.S. Attorney John Durham announced.

Kenneth Lupoli, 57, of Hamden, was indicted by a federal grand jury and charged with one count of possession of explosives by a convicted felon.

It is alleged that on May 28, Lupoli was found in possession of several explosives, including fireworks, fuses, and salutes. Lupoli has a previous criminal history that includes state felony convictions for illegal possession of explosives and criminal possession of a pistol or revolver.

Durham noted that it is a violation of federal law for a person with a previous conviction to possession any explosive that has been transported in interstate or foreign commerce.

Lupoli was indicted earlier this month and arrested on Friday, Sept. 13. He was released on a $100,000 bond. If convicted, Lupoli faces a term of up to 10 years in prison.
