BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- A southern Indiana man has been charged with placing a homemade bomb under the hood of a woman's truck.
Fifty-two-year-old Hugh K. Garner Jr. of Bloomfield was released from Monroe County Jail Saturday after posting a $50,000 bond. Police had arrested him on a warrant for charges of attempted arson, intimidation and criminal mischief.
