BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A federal jury has convicted a southwestern Idaho man of using gas bombs to set fire to two U.S. Department of Agriculture vehicles and a warehouse as part of a plan to divert law officials while breaking into a pawn shop to steal firearms.

U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced Friday that 50-year-old David Joseph VonBargen of Fruitland was convicted of carrying and using firearms during and in relation to a federal crime of violence.

Olson says he was also convicted of conspiracy to maliciously use explosive materials, conspiracy to maliciously damage federal property and theft of firearms. VonBargen is scheduled to be sentenced June 25. He faces a minimum of 35 years in prison and a fine of up to $1.7 million.
