Three cleanup workers who were hailed as heroes after finding a live bomb along the route of a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade in Spokane
they found a backpack containing the bomb about an hour before the scheduled start of the Jan. 17 parade.
They alerted police, who were able to defuse the bomb.
"For the first two days, basically all we did was get chewed out," worker Mark Steiner told KHQ of Spokane. "We did this wrong. We did that wrong. I don't know what you consider calling 911
Harpham was arrested at a rural trailer home about 50 miles north of Spokane, Wash., where the bomb had been placed.
A federal complaint gave little detail about how authorities were led to Harpham. An FBI affidavit against him remained under seal.
But he said there was concern "they were messing around with the bomb." "I think they put themselves at more risk than they needed," Twohig said.
"We did this wrong. We did that wrong. I don't know what you consider calling 911 wrong after two minutes after we found it."
