PHOENIX - A man accused of setting off a pipe bomb outside a Glendale home will remain detained until a trial.
A federal judge ruled Tuesday morning that Gary Vogt, 50, poses a threat to the victims, Richard and Wanda Gray, and the community.
At the hearing the prosecution called Alcohol Tobacco and Firearm Special Agent, Tristan Moreland, to the stand. He told the judge detectives found materials that could be used to make dangerous explosives on a dresser inside Vogt's home.
They also discovered a tube containing a crystal substance along with a glass smoking pipe hidden in a safe. Moreland said it tested positive for drugs. He told the judge agents also seized a Google map printout of an address near the victim's house.
Richard and Wanda Gray were inside the courtroom, but the prosecutor spoke on their behalf. He said the Grays fear Vogt and think he would have no problem finishing what he was attempting if left to his own devices.
Vogt's attorney declined a preliminary hearing. A trial date has not been set.
Vogt was arrested following a pipe bomb explosion at a house near 67th and Olive avenues. A joint investigation by ATF agents and the Glendale Police Department led to Vogt.
According to police, three incidents involving an explosive device being placed near that residence have occurred in the past 14 months.
Vogt was arrested for violation of alleged federal explosive laws connected to the Glendale incidents. He faces two felony charges, one for making destructive devices, the other for possessing them. Each count carries a 10 year prison sentence.
Vogt walked with a cane and had a portable oxygen tank. Neighbors near his home tell ABC15 that he just got out of the hospital after a lung surgery.
