TULSA, Oklahoma -

A federal grand jury just added seven charges to the case of a bombing at Bixby's Air Force recruiting station last month. 

The grand jury indicted Benjamin Roden on seven charges, including making illegal destructive devices, malicious damage of federal property, use of an explosive to commit federal felonies, use, carry and discharge of a destructive device during and in relation to a crime of violence and possession of unregistered destructive devices.

In July, police say Roden planted a pipe bomb that exploded outside the Air Force Recruitment Office near 101st and Memorial.

A few days later, at a federal hearing, both sides agreed Roden needed a mental health evaluation.
