Jeremy Ives

Man, 24, accused of making explosive devices

Investigators aren’t sure what he planned to do with the explosive devices he was allegedly making. But a Forsyth County man was arrested for making the devices in his home, the Sheriff’s Office said Monday.

Deputies were called Sunday night to a south Forsyth home after relatives found the devices, according to Deputy Robin Regan. The GBI bomb unit was called to the home and identified several hazardous devices, Regan said.

“At this time, detectives do not believe Ives had an immediate plan to use the devices,” the Sheriff’s Office said in an emailed statement.

A police K-9 also searched the home for additional devices, but none were located, Regan said.

Jeremy Ives, 24, was arrested in Hall County and charged with possession of a destructive device, police said. He was being held in the Forsyth County jail Monday without bond.
