Weaver pleads guilty; released to Hawaii on bond


PETERSBURG – Petersburg resident Mark Weaver, 59, has pled guilty to one of two felony charges brought against him following an explosion last July in the rock quarry behind the airport.

Weaver faced two counts of Possession of Unregistered Destructive Devices, which included Tovex, the commercial-grade explosive used at the scene in an improvised explosive device (IED), and seven hand grenades recovered in a subsequent search of Weaver’s property.

The second charge, related to the grenades, will be dropped as part of a plea agreement. Weaver will forfeit the devices to the court.
