   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.

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is getting its first explosives-sniffing dog.

   The ATF says the 15 month old chocolate Labrador retriever, Andi, was raised by prison inmates through the program Puppies Behind Bars.

   Andi recently finished a 16 week training program at the ATF's National Canine Academy in Virginia. Her St. Louis trainer, special agent Alan Leah, worked with her over the last 10 weeks of training.

   The ATF says the dog will be used primarily on gun trafficking and search warrants.
