Two men were arrested Friday after one was alleged to be in possession of a weapon of mass destruction.

Local media outlets report that the Federal Bureau of Investigation says 30-year-old Paul George Dandan was arrested Friday in Charlotte.

Responding officers subsequently found a pipe bomb in a residence shared by Mr. Dandan, 30, and his roommate, Derrick Fells, roughly 7 miles north of the Charlotte airport, the local NBC affiliate reported Friday. The weapon in question was a homemade pipe bomb, authorities said.

During the investigation, police determined that Fells had made the device.

The charges stemmed from a 911 call on November 3 reporting that someone had a homemade explosive device in the 300 block of Minitree Lane, police said late Friday.

Dandan was sacked from his position at Charlotte Douglas International Airport following his arrest, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The station says that Fells "changed his mind" and gave the ball to Dandan. The FAA in a statement said it has terminated Dandan's access to the airport and is cooperating with police.

Federal law says that a weapon of mass destruction can be a bomb, a grenade, a rocket, a missile, a mine or other similar weapons created to kill and seriously hurt people. He had access to the airport's air traffic control tower, but the airport said he had no access to restricted areas of the terminal or ramp, nor did he have access to any aircraft. Fells has been charged with three counts of manufacturing a weapon of mass destruction and one count of possession of a weapon of mass destruction.

In 2015, Dandan was arrested by Charlotte police for assaulting a female, according to WCCB reporter Jon Wilson.

A representative with the Federal Aviation Administration noted that Dandan's airport access credentials were revoked following his arrest.
