Suspect: Explosives were for defense in case of apocalypse

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A man arrested on explosives charges says he made the bombs to defend himself in case of an apocalypse.

Wilmington Police and ATF officers arrested Erik Rudolph Arnebold after an investigation into drugs turned up 24 explosives at his home, police say.

Detectives say they found 23 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) hidden down in a trap door under the house at 4705 Patrick Ave.

Police say they were investigating the 37-year-old for having illegal narcotics. They say during the investigation they found materials commonly used for making pipe bombs. Police say 12 of the IEDs were filled with shrapnel.

During an interview at the New Hanover County Jail this afternoon, Arnebold says he made what he described as cherry bombs two or three years ago.

Investigators say they also found a handgun, a rifle and an extensive amount of ammunition in the home, which police say was constructed much like a fortress with windows and doors barricaded.

Investigators say they have no idea why Arnebold was making and storing the bombs. They also say they won’t be commenting on the arrest until they get more info from him.

Arnebold is in the New Hanover County jail under a $625,000 bond charged with 24 weapon of mass destruction counts, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Cape Fear Fair & Expo opens Friday night

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Cape Fear Fair & Expo makes its big return tomorrow.

The fair is at its usual spot at the Wilmington International Airport, but organizers say this year’s fair is better than the last.

From horses to ducks, deep fried Oreos to ice cream and exciting rides for all ages, fair staff says visitors will not be disappointed.

“To me, every fair is exciting,” fair manager Skip Watkins said. “I described it earlier to friends that it’s kind of like a family reunion with the volunteers since we’ve known each other for years, you know? We just… I like seeing kids happy and smile. That’s why I do it.”

The Cape Fear Fair & Expo opens tomorrow at 5 p.m.

There are still advance tickets available for $15 at area Scotchman stores, but you need to go get them now. That offer ends at midnight.

Once the fair opens tomorrow, tickets are $20, or you can purchase a $5 walk around ticket if rides don’t interest you.

This year’s fair runs through Sunday, Nov. 10.
