BREAKING NEWS – Tampa Florida – A Florida woman who was found with 24 homemade pipe bombs and a hit list pleaded guilty to avoid prison, and will instead receive mental health treatment.

Michelle Kolts pleaded guilty in a Tampa courtroom to reduce charges following her 2019 arrest. She was originally charged with 24 counts of making, possessing and discharging a destructive device.

Outside the courthouse, Kolts’ parents stated that they were not surprised with what their daughter was charged with.

“We saw this coming,” said her father. “Ever since she was a little girl, for Christmas and her birthday, she’d always request Barbies, Nintendo video games, and sticks of dynamite.”
