An elderly man is accused of attempting to bomb phone shops as part of his crusade against the spread of porn and other "immoral content", court documents show.
John Douglas Allen, 75, was arrested Tuesday in connection with placing packages of explosives outside two phone shops in northern Michigan, the US Attorney's Office for the Western District of Michigan said in a press release.
Allen was allegedly caught on camera placing pipe bombs in USPS boxes outside an AT&T store in Sault Ste Marie and a Verizon store in Cheboygan, according to an insider-viewed affidavit. The self-made explosives could cause property damage, personal injury and / or death, according to the affidavit.

Court documents show that the boxes were labeled with messages stating that this was the "final warning" and that it would be "next time" during business hours.
Allen also allegedly left threatening letters, placed in a dotted envelope and sealed in zip-lock bags, on cell towers across the state, the affidavit said. The letters saying they were from the Coalition for Moral Telecommunication (CMT) were addressed to AT&T, Verizon and "all other airlines".
In the letters, the CMT claimed to be "nearly thirty strong" and promised to "travel through this country and begin destroying inner-city tower communications" unless several demands were met.

One requirement was that all "telecommunications with immoral content", including swearing and pornography, must be "turned off" within six months.
The letters also called for $ 5 million to be paid within 180 days, warning that the price would "go up a hundred times" if these conditions were not met.
All face extortion and attempted demolition of buildings used in charges against international trade and could face 40 years in prison if convicted.
