A SPRINGVILLE MAN HAS BEEN CHARGED, THIS WEEK, WITH MAKING PIPEBOMBS AT HIS HOME.

BUT POLICE BELIEVE HE WAS JUST DOING IT TO ENTERTAIN HIMSELF, AND DID NOT INTEND TO HARM ANYONE.

POLICE SAY SOMEONE CALLED, REPORTING THE BOMB MAKER. WHEN AUTHORITIES RESPONDED, STEVEN STRONG TOLD THEM HE WAS MAKING 'FIREWORKS,' WITH PAPER AND GUNPOWDER.

BUT POLICE ALSO OBSERVED PLASTIC PIPES, CAPS AND WIRES AT HIS HOME.

STRONG THEN REPORTEDLY TOLD THEM, HE PLANNED TO DETONATE THOSE, IN THE MOUNTAINS.

HE'S BEEN CHARGED WITH FELONY RECKLESSNESS.
