Wise County Man Sentenced In Explosives Case After Guilty Plea

A Norton man prosecutors say possessed multiple explosive devices at his home has been sentenced to nearly 6 years in federal prison. The US Attorney’s office says Jordan Patrick Adams pleaded guilty in November to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and knowingly possessing an unregistered destructive device. The Wise County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police Bomb Squad executed a warrant at Adams’ home in 2022 after getting a tip about explosives and booby traps at his home.
