The Orangeburg Sheriff’s Department apprehended and arrested a New Jersey man who was traveling with improvised explosive devices and guns. Sheriff Larry Williams says Mark Stephan Carron of Cinnaminson, NJ was arrested for failure to stop for a blue light and driving left of center.
Williams says his department began a search for an older model Ford van after getting a tip that an out-of-state individual had guns and improvised explosive devices.
Portions of US Highway 301 were blocked for several hours Tuesday as investigators secured the scene.
According to Orangeburg Sheriff’s office, ATF, FBI and SLED are all involved in the investigation. State and federal charges are pending.
