Fort Hood, Tx — A Fort Hood soldier, who is accused of trying to sell stolen explosives, has pleaded not guilty.
Tyler Glen Patrick was released on a $25,000 bond earlier this month on explosive theft charges.
Patrick has been charged with possession and transportation of stolen explosive material, following his arrest in Copperas Cove after reportedly trying to sell nearly a pound and a half block of C-4 explosive. The explosive is believed to have been stolen after a field exercise on Fort Hood.
The trial for Patrick is scheduled to begin on March 17.
If convicted, Patrick could face up to ten years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
