Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrested a Willcox man on Wednesday, several days after reports that a pipe bomb exploded.
Willcox police searched the area near Curtis and Haskell Avenues on Sunday evening where they found "material, components, and fragmentation consistent with the deployment of a PVC pipe bomb" and contacted ATF agents, police said. No one was reported injured in the explosion.
Willcox officers reviewed surveillance footage, which captured a white Cadillac and a man, later identified as 30-year-old Ronald Stroud, near the blast site.
Willcox Police Chief Dale Hadfield said Willcox police, the Cochise County Sheriff's Department and the Arizona Department of Public Safety assisted ATF agents in executing a search warrant near the area of West Henry Street and North Douglas Avenue where they found evidence of bomb making.
Stroud was arrested and booked into Cochise County Jail on multiple felony counts.
