A man is now behind bars after at least eighteen pipe bombs were found inside his Monroe County home.

Friday afternoon the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office was alerted that a house on the 300 block of Bunn Road contained multiple live explosives. When deputies arrived they discovered several pipe bombs spread throughout the home.

The man who lived at the house, 46-year-old Brian Kendall Mathews was arrested and is being charged with possession of a destructive device.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Explosive Ordnance Unit is now at the home and in the process of removing all the explosives and clearing the home of any other dangers.
