April 7, 2010

The two young men Harrisonburg officials say are responsible for setting off an explosive device near James Madison University in January made their first appearance in court Tuesday.

Andrew Lavedan and Joshua Tripp, both of Harrisonburg, face felony charges for manufacturing, possessing and using an explosive device.

They also faced misdemeanor charges for trespassing on train tracks, but those charges have been dropped.

The one charge against Tripp and both charges against Lavedan were certified to a grand jury Tuesday morning.
