AIKEN, S.C. (AP) - Investigators say a man stopped by police for speeding and arrested in a grocery store parking lot in Aiken had two pipe bombs in his car.

Aiken Public Safety officials said 36-yearold Darin Mabrey has been charged with possessing a destructive device.

Investigators haven't said what Mabrey planned to do with the bombs.

Mabrey remains in the Aiken County jail. It wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
