A 'survivalist' from Bristol has been given a suspended prison sentence after he admitted making explosives and hiding them inside Kinder Egg shells.
Daniel Magee, 39, pleaded guilty on 7 February 2020 to making an explosive substance and possessing three stun guns.
He also pleaded guilty to two counts of importing prohibited items - including an extendable baton and two flick knives.
Today (Friday 27 March) Magee appeared at Bristol Crown Court where he was handed a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months.
He has been in prison since his arrest in December 2018.
Now he must undergo rehabilitation, adhere to a three-month night-time curfew and destroy all of his weapons.
Magee must also pay a £149 victim surcharge and £250 costs.
Police were called at the end of 2019 by UK Border Agency after it intercepted two packages for Daniel Magee which contained suspected prohibited items.
People living in the houses nearby had to leave their homes between 28 and 30 December while police, and the army's explosive ordnance disposal experts, conducted an investigation.
In a police interview, the 39-year-old admitted creating the homemade explosives with the intention of causing an explosion.
It was later discovered Magee is a 'survivalist', which means he's a member of a movement which actively prepares for emergencies and social disruption.
