Douglas County prosecutors have charged a second Lawrence man with criminal use of explosives after an incident last week at a Lawrence apartment.

According to Douglas County Jail records, a sheriff’s officer arrested Adam Bennett Dale, 20, on a warrant in the case late Monday morning. He’s charged with two counts of criminal use of an explosive in connection with a July 9 incident in the 700 block of West 25th Street.

Prosecutors filed two counts of criminal use of an explosive last week against Dakota Jackson Kunkle, also 20, of Lawrence, after officers late on July 7 were sent to an apartment in the 700 block of West 25th Street. Police said officers later determined residents there had been making homemade explosives involving firework ignition powder. Kunkle was also charged with a separate incident involving explosives in July 2011.

Dale posted $3,000 bond later Monday and was given notice to appear in court July 30.
