CAMDEN COUNTY, Missouri- On Thursday, July 10 at about 3 am, a Camden County Deputy says he observed a tan 1998 Nissan Altima fail to stop at an intersection at State Road D and Tunnel Dam Road. As the deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver failed to stop and began traveling at a high rate of speed, striking a mailbox at a residence on D Road.
The deputy pulled over the car and the driver, a 31-year-old male from Camdenton, was arrested for driving on a suspended license. While searching the vehicle, the deputy discovered a scale and a white crystalline substance. As the deputy continued his search of the vehicle, he discovered what appeared to be an explosive device. The deputy backed away from the vehicle and the bomb squad was contacted. The pipe bomb was rendered safe by the explosives team.
The subject was taken into custody and is being held at the Camden County Adult Detention Center. His identification is being withheld pending formal charges.
