TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A 36-year-old Topeka man could spend up to 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to making a pipe bomb.

Joseph E. Rogers entered his plea Monday in Topeka to one count of making a destructive device. He told investigators he used PVC pipe and smokeless powder removed from ammunition to make explosive devices for entertainment value.

Rogers and 29-year-old Kyle C. Roe of Topeka were stopped by Topeka police officers on Nov. 12, 2012. When Roe was being taken into custody after police discovered he had an active felony warrant, he told officers he had a bomb in his pocket.

Roe pleaded guilty in September to possessing a destructive device. He is to be sentenced Nov. 26, while Rogers has a Jan. 27 sentencing date.
