Florida police have arrested a man after finding more than two dozen pipe bombs, including some that contained nails, screws and metal pellets.
Gregory Haasze is facing 26 felony counts of making, possessing and placing a destructive device after his arrest Wednesday night in Palm Beach County, according to the Boynton Beach Police Department.
Police had been called after an explosion and found several bombs near a street and others in a trash bin.
After officers identified Haasze as a suspect, he approached officers and surrendered.
The 34-year-old told them he made the bombs for celebrations and to remove tree stumps and that he never intended to hurt anyone.
His attorneys had no immediate comment.
Boynton Beach police said Thursday that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is now the lead agency investigating Haasze.
