Georgia Dam explosive device suspect released on bond

A man caught with explosives near the Georgia Power Dam in Albany Sunday night, left jail Monday afternoon.

20 year old Timothy Anderson Jr. Is now out on bond.

He was arrested Sunday night after police got a tip that a man had explosive near the dam.

Dougherty County Police found five explosive devices in Anderson's car, but they won't tell us what type of explosives.

Anderson refused to tell Police or us what he was doing with the explosives.

While leaving jail we asked Anderson if he wanted to explain what happened.  Anderson said "Nope."

Dougherty County Police Captain Jimmy Sexton said  "Right now we don't have anything to indicate that he is some kind of terrorist, but we really don't know for sure, and that's why we are continuing to look into him and his background."

Samples of the explosive device and the chemicals used were sent to the FBI crime lab, to determine exactly what they are.

The rest were destroyed by the GBI.
