Pipe bomb case turned over to FBI

July 3, 2007

Valdosta - Police are still searching for answers to why a Florida man stuffed a Valdosta storage unit full of explosives and guns, and what his connection is to Lowndes County.

Police found eight pipe bombs and an arsenal of guns in a rented storage unit off Inner Perimeter Road.

The locker was rented to a Christopher Riendeau of Naples Florida.

The area around the storaged facility was shut down for over 7 hours while the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was brought in to dispose of the bombs.

It's the most explosive the Valdosta Police ever recall finding.  "This is a first for us. This is something we are not accustomed to but overall yesterday I thought the response from all agencies went well," says Commander Brian Childress of the Valdosta Police.

The case has now been turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Reindeau, who is currently in jail in Florida, could now face more state and federal charges.
