Investigators say the bomb was discovered in April 2013 at mail collection-box unit in Flagstaff and was made of smokeless powder, wires, a battery and a pressure-release switch attached to its lid.

Authorities eventually determined the bomb was inoperable, though black power inside the parcel could have exploded or ignited in a flash fire.

Police disabled the bomb.

Authorities say a woman told them that she drove with Shrader to northern Arizona and saw him place the parcel into the mail box wearing surgical-type gloves.
