Anne Arundel County police have charged a 51-year-old Glen Burnie man with manufacturing explosive devices and possession of marijuana.

Delmus Marshal Rice Jr. was arrested Thursday at his home in the 100 block of Georgia Avenue NW.

Officers were executing a narcotics warrant at the home shortly before noon, when they found explosive making materials, two pipe bombs and three black powder pistols. The county fire department and the Annapolis city bomb squad recovered the explosives. At no time was the public at risk from the explosives, police said.

Once the home was deemed safe, detectives seized 26 marijuana plants with a street value of more than $18,000, about $5,000 worth of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.
