        LIBERTY TWP. — A 26-year-old man has been charged with possession of a makeshift bomb after an incident that required evacuation of several homes Wednesday night.

        Rick Flannery, who had been staying with his mother in the 4900 block of Mercedes Drive, was arrested Wednesday on an unrelated charge of failing to comply with a court order.

        But he was later charged with two counts of unlawful possession of dangerous ordnance after authorities found the bomb at his mother's residence.

        After Mr. Flannery's initial arrest, an anonymous tipster told the county sheriff's office that Mr. Flannery had the device, said Brad Kraemer, sheriff's spokesman.

        The sheriff's bomb squad found the shoebox-sized device, which included gunpowder, around 7 p.m. Wednesday, Mr. Kraemer said.

        Mr. Kraemer said he wasn't sure how much damage the bomb could have caused.
