2 min read

Two men from Bryan County, Stephen Glosser, 37, and Caleb Kinsey, 34, both residents of Richmond Hill, Georgia, have been indicted on several federal charges related to the bombing of a residence in Richmond Hill in January 2023.

The charges include Stalking; Use of an Explosive to Commit Another Felony Offense; Conspiracy to Use an Explosive to Commit a Felony; and Possession of an Unregistered Destructive Device. Additionally, Kinsey faces charges of False Statement During the Purchase of a Firearm and Possession of Firearms by a Convicted Felon.

If convicted, the conspiracy charge carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison, with an additional 10 years for using an explosive to commit a felony. Notably, there is no parole in the federal system.

The indictment, announced by U.S. Attorney Jill E. Steinberg of the Southern District of Georgia, alleges that from December 2022 to January 2023, Glosser and Kinsey used electronic communications to surveil the victim with the intent to harm them. They allegedly used a destructive device during this surveillance.

According to the indictment, the two men conspired to harm the victim through various means, including shooting arrows into the victim’s front door, releasing a python into the victim’s home, mailing dog feces or dead rats, scalping the victim, and ultimately, bombing the victim’s home.

Glosser reportedly located the victim’s home using internet searches, mapped out a path, and then, with Kinsey, built an explosive device at Glosser’s home using Tannerite purchased online. The bombing occurred around January 13, 2023.

Both Glosser and Kinsey are currently in custody awaiting further court proceedings. It’s emphasized that they are considered innocent until proven guilty.

The investigation involves multiple agencies including Bryan County Fire and Emergency Services, the Bryan County Sheriff’s Office, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office and its K-9 unit, the Savannah Fire Department, and the Grant Parish (Louisiana) Sheriff’s Office.
