PHOENIX (AP) -- A new trial date has been set for an Oklahoma man charged with mailing an inoperable homemade bomb to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Gregory Lynn Shrader of Jay had been scheduled for a June 23 trial, but it was reset for Sept. 2 after he said he needed more time to undergo medical treatment.

Investigators say the bomb was discovered in April 2013 at mail collection-box unit in Flagstaff.   

Authorities eventually determined the bomb was inoperable, though black power inside the parcel could have exploded or ignited in a flash fire.    

Investigators say a woman who drove with Shrader to northern Arizona saw him place the parcel into the mail box wearing surgical-type gloves.

Shrader has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
