Two men accused of bomb-related crimes leading up to last month's NATO summit were indicted in Cook County court Wednesday.

Sebastian Senakiewicz, 24, is charged with falsely making a terrorist threat, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Senakiewicz was arrested in May. Police also served a warrant on the house in which he was living, looking for incendiary devices and disguises for explosives. Law enforcement found neither.

Senakiewicz, a native of Poland, is being held in lieu $750,000 bail.

Mark Neiweem is charged with solicitation for possession of explosives, which is not a terrorism-related offense. Prosecutors allege Neiweem met associates in a forest preserve to obtain materials to make a pipe bomb.

Neiweem is being held on $500,000 bail.

Prosecutors said the two men are not connected to each other, nor are they connected to three other men charged following a police raid on a Bridgeport apartment.

Attorneys representing all five men claim they were entrapped by undercover operatives.
