Okla. Soldier Sentenced, Took Fake Bomb Onto Ft. Sill

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A federal prosecutor says a Fort Sill soldier has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison for taking a fake bomb into the office of his commander at the fort.

U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats said in a news release that 28-year-old 1st Lt. James Joseph Dabrowski of Lawton was sentenced in federal court in Oklahoma City. Dabrowski had pleaded guilty in September to making a hoax regarding an explosive device.

Investigators say Dabrowski was meeting with the commander when he pulled a box from his backpack to reveal a mortar shell that had a clock and wires attached and a liquid in another container.

The device was later determined to have no explosive material.

    A popular Nocona restaurant is serving up food once again after shutting down from fire damage. Bear's Den Diner caught fire two months ago after a trailer only feet away caught fire and heavy winds spread it to the restaurant. Bear Weller, the owner, said the only reason his kitchen is open is that of his customers.
