Federal Charges In Keyesport Case


The rural Keyesport man charged with bomb-related offenses in Clinton County now faces federal charges.

Kyle S. Matthews, age 25, remains in the Clinton County jail on state charges of allegedly possessing a bomb and possessing a silencer-type device for a firearm.

He now has been charged in U. S. Court in the Southern District with alleged illegal possession of a machine gun, possession of an unregistered firearm silencer and possession of an unregistered short-barreled rifle.

Matthews was arrested at his rural Keyesport property on April 2 after several law enforcement agencies executed a search warrant. The day before, the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department received information that a man, allegedly with what looked like a homemade pipe bomb, was in a Carlyle business.

Police developed information which led to an interest in Matthews.

The search warrant resulted in bomb-making materials, bomb components, about 30 firearms and a large amount of ammunition being confiscated, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department.

It has been reported Matthews will be tried first on the federal charges.
