Police in Florida have arrested a man after discovering more than two dozen pipe bombs, including some that contained nails, screws and metal pellets, near a strip mall.

Gregory Haasze, 34, is facing 26 felony counts of making, possessing and placing a destructive device after his arrest Wednesday night in Palm Beach County.

Officers were called to Hoadley Road at around 7pm after reports of an explosion, Boynton Beach police said in court records.

Investigators found remnants of an exploded pipe bomb and several undetonated bombs along the roadway.

The improvised explosives consisted of a PVC pipe containing black powder and sealed with two caps, and a fuse on one end. Some of the bombs were stuffed with metal screws, pellets and nails.

They closed several roads, evacuated an apartment complex, multiple homes and the Oakwood Square Shopping Center, reported WPTV.

The Palm Beach County sheriff’s bomb squad was then called in to disable the devices.

In the course of the investigation, a neighbor told police a man named Greg who lived nearby makes bombs and sometimes detonates them in vacant lots.

Officers also found a cardboard box in a trash bin with Haasze’s name and address on it and found several bombs and gunpowder inside.

They say Haasze soon approached officers and told them he was why they were there.

Police closed down streets and evacuated multiple homes and a shopping center

Investigators say he told them he had been making bombs for years and had made some of the found devices for this past Fourth of July using materials he had bought on eBay, reported CBS12.

He said he never meant to hurt anyone, claiming that he put the screws, nails and pellets in the bombs to clear tree stumps.

He was being held Thursday at the Palm Beach County jail on $26,000 bond.
