Handguns, explosives, even home-made bombs were all allegedly found in one Pike County man's home.

Pike County Sheriff's Deputies say they arrested 48-year-old Anthony Barron after allegedly discovering several explosives in Barron's home.

Now Barron is behind bars facing both state and federal charges.
Folks living in the Dorton Creek Community of Pike County say their neighborhood was a quiet one until a few months ago.

They say they heard ear-splitting explosions that were allegedly coming from the home of 48-year-old Anthony Barron.

Folks living near Barron say the loud blasts from the explosions' became disturbing and they worried the blasts were also dangerous.

Neighbors hope their once-quiet neighborhood will now return to normal.

In 2005, Barron was charged with possessing explosives and firearms and sentenced to three years.

Barron is being held in the Pike County Detention Center.
