Prosecutors say the 56-year-old Shrader addressed the parcel to Arpaio and dropped it off at a U.S. Postal Service collection box in Flagstaff in April 2013.

They say Shrader was trying to frame an ex-business partner.

The bomb was made of smokeless powder, wires, a battery and a pressure-release switch attached to its lid.
