LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man who told police two years ago that his hobby was making bombs was sentenced Monday to one to three years in prison for violating his probation on a plea of guilty to attempted third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III imposed the sentence on Thomas P. Jamieson, 27, of Falls Street. His neighborhood was evacuated by police April 17, 2012, when police seized a dozen bottles of flammable liquid topped with wicks. Jamieson, who underwent mental health treatment during his probation, told police he bought jet fuel and gunpowder as ingredients, but the bombs were not armed.
