FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a 40-year-old man in Seattle in connection with an attempted bombing of a polling place at a northwest Arkansas church in June.

U.S. Attorney Deborah Groom says Mark Krause was arrested without incident Friday and appeared before a federal judge in Washington Krause was ordered detained and returned to Arkansas.

Court records don't indicate if Krause has an attorney or when he might next appear in court.

Authorities found an improvised explosive device inside a soda can at Osage Baptist Church in Osage, Ark., on June 8 and say that the bomb could have killed anyone within 10 to 15 feet of it had it exploded.

They say in court documents that bomb-making materials had been found in a foreclosed home in Huntsville once owned by Krause.
