A man who set off a bomb under a Bedford bridge has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say Nicholas Nelson pleaded guilty in June to possession of a destructive device.

He was sentenced earlier this month.

They say back on April 7, Nelson detonated a bomb under a bridge on Forest Ridge Drive.

Investigators also found an un-detonated explosive along the roadway.
