The Division of Criminal Investigation has arrested some miscreant for possession of a destructive device. No, not Jason Ravnsborg’s Taurus—it appears the DCI, Bon Homme County Sheriff, FBI, and ATF found Joseph Hansen making bombs in his house in Tabor:
This weekend, the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation was requested to investigate allegations of destructive device possession and manufacturing after local law enforcement responded to reports of an explosion at a Tabor, South Dakota residence.
As the result of interviews and a search warrant executed by DCI Special Agents and public safety bomb technicians, Joseph Hansen of Tabor, South Dakota was arrested on charges of sale, transportation, or possession of a destructive device and unauthorized possession of substances with intent to make a destructive device [staff, “Man Arrested for Possession of Destructive Device in Tabor,” KSFY, 2021.08.22].
Last July, one Joseph Hansen of Tabor, then age 28, was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia.
Eleven years ago today, one Joseph Thomas Hansen of Claire City, then age 18, was arrested for possessing and bombs and bomb-making materials after police received a tip that Hansen was planning to blow up his high school in Sisseton. Hansen wrote that he wanted to “become the world’s most infamous sociopath.” Hansen pled guilty and was sentenced to twenty years in the state penitentiary, with ten years suspended. The DOC Offender Locator indicates that Joseph T. Hansen, Inmate #16699, now age 29, completed his sentence and is “outside”.
