A 27-year-old Durango man is behind bars after police said they found bomb-making ingredients at his home, including an apparent grenade and hundreds of firecrackers.
Police learned about the stash at Larry Haddow's home as part of an assault investigation Saturday and confiscated the items.
Haddow is being held at the La Plata County Jail on $10,000 bond for investigation of second-degree assault, menacing, prohibited use of a firearm and reckless endangerment. Police said they turned over evidence of explosives over to prosecutors, who will consider additional charges against Haddow.
Haddow is accused of chasing 34-year-old Grant P. Ponder of Durango through residential streets with a shotgun after the two fought while playing pool at Haddow's home.
Police arrested Haddow a short time later. Ponder was treated for injuries and released.
Authorities say that among the items found in Haddow's home were firecrackers, some of which were dismantled; a device that appeared to be a fragmentation grenade; and improvised explosive darts.
