DINGESS, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia State Police say a man found with a bomb inside his vehicle has been taken into custody.

Local media outlets report police say 59-year-old Herman Vance was arrested Sunday near the Mingo-Logan county line. He is charged with obstructing, simple possession and illegal possession of destructive devices and explosives.

Police say the suspect made threats that he was going to put the bomb inside a police cruiser or the Mingo County Courthouse.

Investigators say a tip about Vance led to them finding a pipe bomb in the suspect’s vehicle.

Vance was being held in jail. It isn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.
