Ohio man charged with having pipe bombs, silencer

CLEVELAND (AP) — A northeast Ohio man has been indicted on charges of unlawfully having five pipe bombs, a silencer and a machine gun.

The indictment against 41-year-old David Dougherty of Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) Falls near Akron was announced Wednesday by U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach.

Dougherty was arrested last month at his home when paramedics called for help with an unruly patient. Officers found pipe bombs, a silencer, explosive powder and caps and marijuana plants.

Prosecutors had no comment on a possible motive.

No attorney is listed in court records for Dougherty and he could not be reached for comment. A message was left at a phone listing in his name in the Akron area.
