LENOIR, NC (WBTV) -

A Lenoir man was arrested after police said at least two weapons of mass destruction were found in his home.

The incident began just after 9:15 a.m. when the Lenoir Police Department got a call about a bomb being inside a home on Cedar Place, which is off of Hibriten Drive SW.

At the home, officers found materials they say "appeared to be consistent with materials used to construct a weapon of mass destruction."

The weapons, officials said, were a "Molotov cocktail" and a second, unidentifiable incendiary device. Both devices were collected and secured by STAT Environmental Services of Lenoir.

Police arrested 22-year-old Joseph Scott Bolick, Jr., at the home and charged him with manufacture/possess nuclear/biological/chemical weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bolick was taken to the Caldwell County Jail and placed under a $50,000 secured bond.
