|DANGER PENDING - A Fayette County man is facing a long list of charges after deputies say they found materials that would be used to make an explosive device in his home.|
Denver Julious, 66, of Hilltop, is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a destructive device or explosive materials, first-degree robbery, attempted murder, brandishing a dangerous and deadly weapon and battery.
Fayette County Sheriff's deputies say they got a tip Friday afternoon that Julious had been allegedly manufacturing pipe bombs in the Red Star Road area and had made threats to kill multiple people.
Deputies say Julious has been convicted of multiple violent felonies in the past and they also received word that he had several firearms in his possession.
Investigators say following an investigation, they executed a search warrant at a residence on Red Star Road on Friday.
During the search, deputies say they found multiple firearms as well as a substantial amount of explosive or incendiary material that was apparently being used to prepare improvised explosive devices.
"The area where this incident occurred is a residential area with other residences in close proximity to it," said Sheriff Steve Kessler. "Given the violent criminal history of this individual, the alleged threats that had been made and the potential danger to the community, we didn't want to waste any time in moving forward with this investigation.
