David Lawless Indicted In Borders Bookstore Arson

DENVER (AP) – A Denver man who allegedly admitted breaking into a Borders bookstore and placing three homemade bombs at the site has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of arson and possession and use of a destructive device.

The indictment also says 30-year-old David Lawless tried to destroy the Urban Sombrero Restaurant in Denver the day before.

The FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office said Lawless admitted breaking into a Borders bookstore on June 25 and leaving three suspected explosive devices. He also allegedly told authorities he had another device in his truck.

Lawless is currently in state custody in Clear Creek County where he is being held on unrelated state charges.
