WILLMAR (KMHL) – A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Benson man who has been charged with having a bomb in his vehicle last month near Willmar.

Randy Frederiks, 31, of Benson didn’t appear for a pretrial hearing in Kandiyohi County District Court Thursday. Frederiks was arrested in August after authorities discovered a bomb in a pickup he was driving north of Willmar.

He was freed from the Kandiyohi County Jail after posting bail, but didn’t attend the scheduled hearing on Thursday.
