FENTON (KMOV) -- A 28-year-old man is in custody after officers found explosive devices in a truck in Fenton, Mo. Thursday.

David Taylor, 28, was charged with unlawful possession of an explosive weapon. He is being held on a $50,000 bond. At 3:30 p.m., police pulled Taylor over because he was allegedly driving behind a school bus too close in the first block of Gravois Road. Taylor was initially arrested for an outstanding warrant but officers found two pipe bombs in the center console of his truck during a search.

The 28-year-old later admitted to buying them. Anyone with the St. Louis County Police Department at 636-529-8210 or CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS(8477).
