DENVER (AP) — A man accused of leaving pipe bombs in the safe in his downtown Denver hotel room and writing the word "explosives" on the closet mirror has been charged with one count of possession of a destructive device.

Prosecutors announced Monday that 35-year-old Adam Hayat was indicted late last week by a federal grand jury. He was advised of the charge during an afternoon court appearance in Denver, his first since being returned to Colorado.

Hayat was arrested at a hotel near Los Angeles International Airport on Feb. 16, a day after the explosives were found in Denver.

His lawyer declined to comment on the charge.

During the hearing, Hayat squinted and looked at the gallery, which included reporters. As he left, he asked them if they were law students, saying he was "just curious".
