DENVER (AP) – A Denver man accused of breaking into a Borders in the Colorado Mills Mall and placing three homemade bombs is now in federal custody.

David Lawless, 30, has been held in Clear Creek County since shortly after the alleged attack on June 25. The U.S. attorney’s office said that Lawless was transferred to federal custody after bonding out of jail Tuesday and was set to appear in court Wednesday.

Lawless was arrested in Clear Creek County on charges of drunken driving and resisting arrest after an accident there.

He’s been charged in federal court with arson and use of a destructive device.

Authorities haven’t given any motive for the attack.
