DETROIT (WJBK) -- A house on Detroit's east side looked like it should be vacant, but there was a man living inside. When the bank came out to take pictures, he allegedly came out with a gun and a bomb.
Sources say the 48-year-old man living there has been in the neighborhood for years. The house once belonged to his parents, but now it is owned by the bank and he had been told to leave, but didn't.
Thursday morning, he spotted bank employees on the property taking pictures of the house and allegedly snapped, reportedly threatening the employees with a gun and a live pipe bomb full of gunpowder.
The employees called Detroit Police and the bomb squad secured the scene and an explosive device. No one was hurt and police arrested the suspect. Sources tell us he's been arrested three times before for carrying a gun, and now that he's accused of possessing a bomb, his next home could be behind bars.
