UNION TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man faces numerous charges after handguns and explosive materials were recovered from his vehicle and home.

Acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park says 62-year-old Alfred Intrabartolo of Union Township was arrested Monday after investigators allegedly saw him toss an explosive device resembling a large firecracker out of his moving vehicle. Investigators were in the area because residents had reported last week that someone was setting off small, low-grade explosive devices.

A search of the vehicle uncovered a loaded .32-caliber handgun and explosive materials. Two additional handguns and more low-grade explosive materials and gunpowder were later found at Intrabartolo’s home.

Intrabartolo was charged with weapons offenses and possession of a destructive device, and additional charges are pending. He was being held on $250,000 cash bail, and it was not known if he has retained a lawyer.
