An Akron man was arrested Sunday after a functioning pipe bomb was found inside a home on Grant Street.

Daniel Mallory, 57, of Akron, was arrested and charged with possessing and manufacturing a dangerous ordinance and attempting to possess a dangerous ordinance.

Police arrived to a house on Grant Street after Mallory's roommate told police that there was a pipe bomb inside the home. He also told police that Mallory attempted to light the bomb before falling asleep, police said.

The pipe bomb was found on top of a brick on a window sill on the bottom floor of the residence, police said.

While canvassing the inside of the home, police said they found exactly what a pipe bomb would appear to look like. It had a tubed metal body with end caps screwed on it and a fuse sticking out, according to police.

The Summit County bomb squad responded and removed the explosive device.

Mallory, who was upstairs sleeping, was arrested by police.

Bomb squad experts search Mallory's room and found drill bits, a hollow metal pipe and wiring in plain sight.

He was given a $25,000 bond, according to the Summit County Jail.
