The Prince George's County Sheriff's Office said deputies have arrested a man who allegedly built an explosive device that was found in a shed in Aquasco.

Christopher Bolton, of Silver Spring, has been charged with manufacturing or possession of a destructive device. He was arrested on Wednesday and is being held on $750,000.

Deputies said in September, Bolton threatened to kill a person he had a disagreement with and began building a device out of screws, batteries, .40 caliber ammunition rounds and an unknown liquid in a plastic bottle.

On Feb. 7, the device was found in a shed and removed safely by the Fire Marshal's bomb squad. On that date, a warrant was issued for Bolton's arrest.
