WINNIPEG - A Canadian Forces soldier arrested after a violent party scuffle pleaded guilty to illegal possession of several military training explosives, which cops found scattered around in a room in his Winnipeg home.

Mitchell Wilson, 20, pleaded guilty Tuesday to offences including assault causing bodily harm, possession of property obtained by crime, four counts of possession of goods obtained by crime, unsafe storage and possession of an explosive without lawful excuse.

Winnipeg police, called to an early-morning disturbance at a house party on May 27, 2012, saw their investigation transform into a much larger weapons-related probe requiring the expertise of the bomb unit.

No facts of the odd case were disclosed Tuesday and sentencing was adjourned until later this year. Wilson remains free in the community having been released on a promise to appear after his arrest. The Crown did not state what sentence it will seek.
