DENVER, N.C. — Two people were arrested following an explosion in Denver Wednesday night, according to WSOC.

Gregory Scott Reynolds, 54, and Amy Michelle Dove, 42, are charged with one felony count each of malicious use of an incendiary/attempted property injury, manufacturing/possession of a weapon of mass destruction and possession of a controlled substance.

Deputies with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area of Andrews Point Drive Wednesday night after residents reported hearing a loud explosion and feeling their homes shaking.

After searching the area, deputies found a 12-inch-deep, 19-inch-wide hole in the ground beside the road.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, developed a person of interest during their investigation.

After collecting evidence at the person of interest’s home off of N. Highway 16 Business, deputies found that both residents were wanted on outstanding warrants.

Deputies later learned that the two made the explosive on land owned by Reynolds’ sister, according to WSOC.

Along with the explosion-related charges, Reynolds was served an outstanding second-degree trespassing warrant. Dove was served with a warrant for failure to appear.

Reynolds is being held in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $155,000 secured bond and Dove was given a $150,000 secured bond.

Both are scheduled to appear in court Monday.
