PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A 44-year-old man accused of scattering pipe bombs around the Oregon cities of Portland, McMinnville and Florence last year has pleaded not guilty to federal charges.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/ZVrWvj) that Neal Panschow appeared Thursday for arraignment on six counts of possessing an unregistered destructive device and one count of arson. He made no public statements.

Court records show some of the pipe bombs exploded, but no one was hurt.

Of the bombs that exploded, one damaged two cars in southwest Portland, one went off in Florence and another caused minor damage in McMinnville.

On Dec. 16, police say Panschow tossed four pipe bombs in two separate bags out the window of a stolen car as he fled from officers in southeast Portland. He was arrested Dec. 21.

Trial is set for April 28.
