From CNN:

Paul George Dandan, 30, a worker at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport, was charged with acquiring, possessing and transporting a weapon of mass destruction, police said in a statement.

Last week, police received a 911 call that someone had a homemade explosive at a Charlotte home. When officers arrived, they found a homemade pipe bomb, authorities said.

Investigators said another man, 39-year-old Derrick Fells, built the bomb to “use it against a neighbor with whom he was involved in an ongoing dispute.” But Fells changed his mind and gave Dandan the device, police said.

Both men were arrested Friday, but it’s unclear how they knew each other.

More, via Fox News:

The Federal Aviation Administration immediately fired Dandan after his arrest and revoked his access to Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Authorities at the airport stressed that Dandan only had access to an offsite air traffic control tower.

Dandan is being held at a county jail on $45,000 bond, according to the Mecklenberg County Sheriff’s Office.

The FBI is assisting local police with the investigation but said federal charges aren’t expected at the moment.

From New York Daily News:

Fells was charged with three counts of manufacturing a weapon of mass destruction and one count of possession.
