SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Prosecutors say a U.S. Army soldier has been charged with trying to sell explosive material that he stole following a field exercise at Fort Hood.

A news release from U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman said the federal criminal complaint charging 23-year-old Tyler Glen Patrick with possession and transportation of stolen explosive material was unsealed Thursday.

According to the criminal complaint, Patrick was arrested Tuesday in Copperas Cove after trying to sell a 1¼-pound block of C-4 explosive.

Patrick remains in federal custody. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a maximum $250,000 fine. Attempts by The Associated Press to determine whether he had an attorney yet were unsuccessful.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division are investigating the case.
