A Eureka man was convicted Thursday by a federal jury in Topeka for unlawful possession of explosive materials.

Alfred C. Dutton, 67, possessed grenade bodies on Aug. 23, 2011, and other parts for use in constructing a destructive device, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office said.

Sentencing will be set for a later time. Dutton faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000.

The Wichita police bomb squad participated in the investigation.
