Suspect arrested in Glendale pipe bomb case
A man is in custody after allegedly placing three pipe bomb-like explosives in front of a Glendale home, the Glendale Police Department said.
The suspect, identified as Gary Vogt, was arrested after a combined investigation between Glendale police and the ATF.
According to police, Vogt placed three improvised explosive devices in the driveway of a residence near 67th Ave. and Olive over the last 14 months.
After the second such incident, the homeowner installed cameras, which capture Vogt allegedly placing the third IED in the driveway before getting into his white 1998 Chevrolet Suburban, also caught on camera.
"The execution of that search warrant had items of evidence taken into custody, to include a four-door white Suburban," said ATF Agent Tom Mangan.
Vogt was arrested on federal explosive charges. His first court appearance is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Friday.
