Alleged bomb makers denied bond again

Seth Bennon Roberts, 24, and Wesley Robert Peters, 22, of 170 Lamar County Line Road, Griffin, were again denied bond at a preliminary/committal and probable cause hearing in Lamar County magistrate court Tuesday. Roberts, represented by Virgil Brown and Eric Hearn; and Peters, represented by Stacy Morris of the Ricky Morris firm, argued for the lessening and/or dismissal of their multiple charges. Judge William Thomas found the state has probable cause and sufficient evidence to bind the case over to superior court. A request for bond was met with Thomas’ suggestion the attorneys meet with the district attorney’s office to seek a consent order. Until such time as bond is set, the will remain in the Lamar jail. Roberts and Peters were arrested May 15 after Lamar County deputies, officers of the Department of Natural Resources and the GBI bomb squad allegedly found them in possession of multiple firearms and eight explosive devices – two of which were loaded with tacks and nails. Such devices are considered anti-personnel explosives. The alleged marijuana (two pounds found in a lock box and more than an ounce found in a bag), the makings for more pipe bombs and drug-related paraphernalia were found in their residence. Their bonds were denied in a first appearance hearing shortly after their arrests.
