Police: Man arrested with pipe bomb-building materials

DEER PARK, TEXAS - A Mont Belvieu man was arrested Sunday after police said they found materials necessary to build a pipe bomb in his car.

Richard Allen Macyko was charged with possessing components of explosives.

Deer Park police pulled Macyko over on a traffic stop Sunday. They ran a computer check and learned he had been arrested with a pipe bomb in March.

Macyko gave the officers consent to search his vehicle and that’s when, officers say, they found gun powder, blasting caps, bullets, a fuse, a 36” metal pipe, ball bearings and marbles.

Macyko is being held without bond in the Harris County Jail.

He was given deferred adjudication, a form of probation, on the March charge.
