An air traffic controller who works at a North Carolina airport was arrested Friday for having a weapon of mass destruction.
Paul Dandan, 30, has been charged with possession of a weapon of mass destruction and two counts of weapons offenses.
He was held on $ 45,000 bail.
Authorities have yet to clarify what kind of weapon Dandan had or where he had it.
But sources told local TV station WSOCTV that explosives were found at his home.

Dandan was working at Charlotte Douglas International Airport when he was picked up by federal authorities.
His roommate was arrested for having bomb-making materials, the source told WSOCTV.
Items that could make a pipe-bomb were found in Dandan’s home, the source said. The device wasn’t assembled, but federal agents are involved in the case, according to reports.
The Federal Aviation Administration has terminated Dandan’s access to the airport.
