Ft. Hood soldier released on bond after selling explosives

WACO - A Ft. Hood Soldier was in federal court Thursday in Waco accused of trying to sell a block of C-4 explosives. 

The judge let Tyler Glen Patrick out on a $25,000 dollar unsecured bond on Thursday. After an FBI case agent and Patrick's wife took the stand, the judge decided to let him out. Patrick was charged with possession and transportation of stolen explosive material and was arrested in December. He took a 1.5 pound block of explosives after a field exercise so he can sell it to cover his bills. The FBI case agent who conducted the investigation found Patrick in no danger to the community. 

Patrick's wife, Shannon Ryan, took the stand and told the judge he has a lot of support from his family and friends. Ryan also said Patrick loves the army and that he has received numerous awards including soldier of the month.

Samuel Martinez is representing Patrick and told the judge he fell behind financially and made a stupid mistake.

Whether or not Patrick will keep his job on post, will be up to his chain of command.

If convicted, Patrick could face up to 10 years in federal prison.
