Detectives from the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office obtained a warrant from the Montcalm County prosecutor’s office charging Steven Warren Stewart, 39, formerly of Stanton, with one count of harmful devices-unlawful possession or use causing injury. The charge carries a penalty of life in prison and/or a $25,000 fine.
This warrant stems from a September 11, 2008 incident, where a chemical bomb device was placed at a home in Eureka Township, which caused injury to the homeowner. Stewart is currently being held in a federal detention facility in Ayers, Massachusetts. Montcalm County detectives are working with federal officers to arrange transportation back to Michigan for arraignment on the charge.
Sheriff deputies were assisted by agents from the FBI, ATF, and the Michigan State Police crime lab during the investigation.
