(Omaha, NE) -- A man charged in a string of explosions in Omaha back in 2021, pleads guilty.

On Thursday, 24 year old Kalem Barber pleaded guilty to distributing explosive materials in connection to the November 2021 explosions. Investigators say Barber made the explosive devices, put them at different locations in west Omaha, then recorded the blasts and posted them online. Barber is also facing federal charges of distributing explosive materials and unlawful storage of explosive material.

After investigators linked Barber to the explosions, they searched his house and found 20 pounds of flash powder and explosive components. Barber faces ten years in prison. He's set to be sentenced in June.
