FBI Seeks Help Finding SoCal Fugitive
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (CN) - The FBI asked for help to find Edward Allen Costa, 48, who is charged with possessing pipe bombs that were strewn around Palm Springs last year.
Costa was indicted Wednesday on six counts of possessing pipe bombs and one count of escaping from custody, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
