    MIAMI - FEBRUARY 02: A judges gavel rests on top of a desk in the courtroom of the newly opened Black Police Precinct and Courthouse Museum February 3, 2009 in Miami, Florida. The museum is located in the only known structure in the nation that was designed, devoted to and operated as a separate station house and municipal court for African-Americans. In September 1944, the first black patrolmen were sworn in as emergency policemen to enforce the law in what was then called the "Central Negro District." The precinct building opened in May 1950 to provide a station house for the black policemen and a courtroom for black judges in which to adjudicate black defendants. The building operated from 1950 until its closing in 1963. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

    A man accused of leaving pipe bombs in the safe in his downtown Denver hotel room and writing the word "explosives" on the closet mirror has been charged with one count of possession of a destructive device.

    Prosecutors announced Monday that 35-year-old Adam Hayat was indicted late last week by a federal grand jury. He was advised of the charge during an afternoon court appearance in Denver, his first since being returned to Colorado.

    Hayat was arrested at a hotel near Los Angeles International Airport on Feb. 16, a day after the explosives were found in Denver.

    His lawyer declined to comment on the charge.

    During the hearing, Hayat squinted and looked at the gallery, which included reporters. As he left, he asked them if they were law students, saying he was "just curious".
