PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man prohibited from possessing explosives has been sentenced in South Dakota to 33 months in prison.

The U.S. attorney for South Dakota says 33-year-old Nathaniel Johnson of Dickinson was found last year with an explosive mix containing ammonium and sodium nitrate, most likely shipped from Mexico.

Johnson has a criminal record and was banned from possessing the explosives.

He pleaded guilty to charges in April.
