Coastside man to trial for throwing explosive
June 20, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Adam Dutra

An El Granada man facing a potential third strike for allegedly detonating a half-stick of dynamite on a driveway and dropping another explosive device is headed straight to court after waiving a preliminary hearing on the evidence.

Adam Eugene Dutra, 31, has pleaded not guilty to illegally possessing an explosive device with the intent to injure or intimidate. If convicted as a third-striker, Dutra could face a 25 years to life prison term.

Dutra reportedly admitted throwing the explosives but gave no further explanation for the March 30 incident.

At 10:49 p.m. that night, Dutra reportedly drove by a Half Moon Bay home and threw the half stick and explosive device. Neither caused any damage or injuries.

A neighbor’s surveillance video captured the incident and sheriff’s deputies linked it to Dutra. Dutra is on post-prison supervision which allowed detectives to search his cellphone and they reported finding multiple photos of explosives material on the device.

In 2004, Dutra was convicted of felony assault with a vehicle and making criminal threats against a 20-year-old man with whom he had an ongoing dispute. He also violated his probation on those charges several times leading to prison incarceration.

He remains in custody on $250,000 bail.
