COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio man is facing charges after sheriff's deputies say they found explosive devices and a loaded firearm at his home.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien says deputies had gone to the house in Columbus on Jan. 15 to evict 55-year-old Mark A. Kulis. O'Brien said the officers found six improvised explosive devices, bomb-making materials, several firearms and ammunition in the home.

A grand jury indicted Kulis Friday on charges of criminal possession of an explosive device and carrying a concealed weapon. No attorney is listed for him in court records.

O'Brien says if convicted of the charges, Kulis could be sentenced to more than 25 years in prison.

Kulis is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A former outside bookkeeper for a failed credit union in Cleveland has been charged with a nearly $1 million fraud.

Federal officials announced the filing Friday of a single count of conspiracy against 44-year-old Vytas Apanavicius (VEE'-tahs ah-pan-ah-VIH'-shuhs) of Mentor.

Defense attorney Michael Hennenberg says his client intends to accept responsibility and plead guilty.

The outside bookkeeper for the Taupa Lithuanian Credit Union allegedly looted money with the help of a former CEO of the financial institution.

The ex-CEO and two other men were charged earlier.

The National Credit Union Administration and the state of Ohio took over the credit union in July and placed it in receivership. It had about 1,150 members and assets of $24 million.

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — State troopers in Ohio have arrested an Oregon man after finding 32 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle during a traffic stop in northeast Ohio.

The State Highway Patrol says they stopped the 44-year-old driver for failing to signal along the Ohio Turnpike on Wednesday afternoon.

The patrol says a drug-sniffing dog alerted to the vehicle and the marijuana, worth about $144,000, was found in the trunk during a search of the 1996 Mercedes.

The man was arrested and is being held in the Lorain County jail on charges of aggravated drug trafficking and possession of marijuana, both third-degree felonies. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison and up to a $20,000 fine.

MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say at least three cats have died after a fire in the basement of an animal shelter in north-central Ohio.

Fire officials say they saved 36 cats from the Stop The Overpopulation of Pets cat rescue in Mansfield and that eight others are missing.

Mansfield Fire Department Assistant Chief Mark Sieving tells the Mansfield News Journal that he believes the dead cats died of smoke inhalation.

Dispatcher Mark Huckleberry says a shelter employee called authorities just before 6:30 p.m. Friday to report the fire in the basement. The cause of the fires is under investigation.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The University of Michigan has named Brown University Provost Mark Schlissel as its new president.

The Board of Regents approved Schlissel's appointment on Friday, meaning he'll become the 14th person to lead the Ann Arbor school.

Schlissel is Brown's chief academic officer. Before that, he served as dean of biological sciences at the University of California-Berkeley.

Schlissel will succeed President Mary Sue Coleman, who announced last year that she would step down when her contract expires this summer. She will leave as Michigan's fourth longest-serving leader.

The 70-year-old Coleman also is the university's first female president.

Coleman was hired in 2002 after seven years as president at the University of Iowa. Her time in Ann Arbor has been marked by significant physical changes to the campus.
