Reinbold posted bail but was prohibited from leaving Minnesota
The man accused of stashing a cache of pipe bombs at a rural Oklee property has been arrested in Kansas after authorities say he posted bail and violated release conditions by leaving Minnesota.
Eric James Reinbold, 41, is awaiting extradition back to Minnesota, the Red Lake County Sheriff’s Office reported.
The rural Oklee property owner discovered the pipe bombs in a container concealed in a debris pile and contacted authorities. The subsequent investigation involved the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The investigation eventually led to Reinbold when a receipt found with the pipe bombs had his name on it. Reinbold was held on $15,000 bail, which he posted.
He’s charged with possession of explosive devices.
Reinbold was involved in an armed standoff two years ago, when, in June of 2015 he reportedly rammed a pickup into his car that had his wife and children inside. Multiple law enforcement agencies descended on his home and set up a perimeter after Reinbold hid in some adjacent woods and refused to come out without a weapon. He turned himself in days later after a warrant was issued for his arrest. As part of that incident, Reinbold pleaded guilty in 2016 to second degree assault and endangerment of a child by firearm access. He received a stay of adjudication on the assault charge and received five years probation.
