PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Portland police, responding to recent loud explosions on the eastside, say they arrested a 69-year-old man and hundreds of explosive devices described as “similar to large fireworks.”

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Thomas Huskey was charged with three counts each of possession of a destructive device and manufacture of a destructive device.

It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer to speak for him.
