Ex-Soldier Admits Bringing Grenades to Bronx



    Meet Four Inspiring Kids Tackling Cancer

    An ex-Army soldier has admitted he brought two grenades from Fort Bragg, N.C., to his New York City home after shipping them back from his service in Iraq.

    The U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan says Anthony Cibelli pleaded guilty Friday to transporting the grenades without a license. His lawyer didn't immediately respond to an email message Friday night.

    Cibelli faces up to five years in prison. His sentencing is set for Oct. 16.

    The 25-year-old Cibelli was discharged from the Army in 2010. Authorities searched his Bronx home in December 2011.

    They said they found two grenades on the roof outside his bedroom window, plus four guns, two improvised explosive devices and ammunition.

    Cibelli told officers he'd stashed the items in a container he shipped from Iraq to Fort Bragg.
