In a story that failed to get much attention last week, federal authorities say they stopped a plot to bomb a small North Carolina airport and will charge a suspect who allegedly said he was “getting ready to fight a war on U.S. soil.”

On Nov. 3, Charlotte-Mecklenberg police detectives responded to a 911 call at a local home to investigate reports that an individual was in possession of a homemade explosive device. Members of the bomb squad were able to determine that the object was a pipe bomb, police said.

Police opened a joint investigation with the FBI into the device and obtained arrest warrants Friday for Dandan and Fells.

Dandan was previously arrested in 2015 and charged with assault on a female, WCNC said.
