   A metro-east teen could spend ten years in federal prison after pleading guilty to possessing explosive devices in his home.

   Thomas Lee Stanton is 18 years old. He was a student at O'Fallon Township High School when he was arrested in April. Prosecutors say Stanton pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in East St. Louis Tuesday to unlawfully possessing destructive devices.

   Local, state and federal authorities had searched his Lebanon, Illinois home and found bomb-making equipment. Stanton admitted in court that he had "cricket" bombs made from carbon-dioxide cartridges, two Molotov cocktails and other explosive making materials, including fuses and explosive powder.

   The high school had been put on lockdown during the search.  Portions of the school were also searched.

   Stanton faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he's sentenced on Dec. 13.
