Pipe Bombs: 59-year-old Steven White of Cleveland was taken into federal custody Tuesday afternoon after a search of his residence turned up two pipe bombs, an illegal gun and methamphetamines. Liberty County Pct. 6 Constable John Joslin said the man’s arrest came after a woman showed up at the office of Pct. 5 Constable Warren Despain with a suspicious device later determined to be a pipe bomb. That led authorities to obtain a search warrant for White’s home in the 800 block of Plum Grove Road. Constable Joslin said the suspect fled but was captured a short time later. Steven White was taken into custody by the ATF Tuesday afternoon. No word on what charges the Cleveland man is facing.

Liberty Airport: Liberty City Manager Gary Broz said exciting things are happening at Liberty Municipal Airport. One of those, he said, is the addition of an aeronautical mechanic who relocated his business to the airport. There are 20 city-owned hanger spaces at the Liberty airport, and 13 of those are leased. That includes two spaces for the new mechanic. The county also leases property where individuals can build hangars. Mr. Broz said Bill Sjolander of Dayton is nearing completion on the hanger he is constructing on city property at the Liberty airport.
