Marietta man charged with placing pipe bomb in park | Crime
ROSWELL, Ga. (WXIA) – Michael Sibley made a first court appearance on Monday in connection with federal charges for leaving a pipe bomb in Vickery Creek National Park in Roswell last November.
Sibley, 67 of Marietta, was arrested by the FBI on Mar. 21.
"The defendant allegedly placed a bag containing what appeared to be pipe bombs in Vickery Creek Park," said acting U.S. Attorney John Horn in a statement Monday afternoon. "This arrest should reassure the community that serious crimes like this will be investigated thoroughly and all leads followed to identify the perpetrator."
Saturday, the FBI was able to identify Sibley as the person responsible for placing the device in the park and arrested him at his Marietta home on a criminal complaint.
The complaint charges Sibley with presenting false information regarding the explosive, along with the attempt to damage federal property with the device. Vickery Creek is a part of the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area.
