A Montana judge has set bail at $2 million for a Virginia man who authorities say threw pipe bombs at officers while leading them on a 40-mile chase in a stolen car.

Laurence Stewart II appeared Friday before District Judge Dirk Sandefur.

Stewart is charged with three counts of attempted deliberate homicide. The Great Falls Tribune reports two patrol cars drove over a bomb Thursday just before it exploded, and another bomb exploded near a deputy's car.

The 25-year-old Stewart also faces a charge of felony criminal endangerment for allegedly throwing a bomb near a parked civilian.

Det. John Cadner of Cascade County Sheriff's Office testified other bombs were seized from the vehicle.

Stewart faces charges in Virginia for allegedly detonating pipe bombs at homes there.
