BEL AIR -- Two men who had manufactured and detonated a homemade pipe bomb outside a Bel Air pizza and deli shop July 31 pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment charges yesterday in Harford Circuit Court.

Michael D. Kutcher, 25, and Phill J. Rowland, 36, both of Bel Air, were arrested after the explosion behind Gus's New York Deli and Pizza at 201 Gateway Drive.

Kutcher is the manager at the deli, and Rowland is the owner.

Assistant State's Attorney Joseph Meadows agreed to drop charges of possession of a pipe bomb and possession of explosives without a license and to recommend a cap of 18 months in jail.

Each defendant faces up to five years in prison.

Sentencing is set for Jan. 11. Kutcher is free on $10,000 bond, and Rowland was freed without having to pay bond.
