FRESNO (AP) — A man suspected of setting off a series of pipe bombs in Fresno-area mailboxes is under arrest, Fresno County Sheriff’s spokesman Chris Curtice said Thursday.

Cody Frederick Bewarder, 27, was arrested on charges of possessing an explosive device in a public place, use of an explosive device, possession of bomb making materials and being armed in the commission of a felony.

After detectives investigated a residential mailbox bombing at a home in June, Curtice said, they learned of two other mailbox bombings in the previous months that had used the same unique bomb making materials.
