During the execution of the search warrant, six improvised explosive devices, bomb making materials, several firearms and ammunition were recovered. “If convicted of these charges, Kulis could be sentenced to 25-1/2 years in prison,” O’Brien stated. Arraignment for Kulis will be next Monday, January 27th, 2014 at 1:30 pm in courtroom 2A at 345 S. High Street.
