      Second arrest made in connection to incendiary devices found

      A second arrest has been made, following the arrest of a man who police say had incendiary devices in Myrtle Beach.

      Robin Scott Peterman, 55, of Myrtle Beach faces a charge of Possessing, Manufacturing or Transport of a Destructive Device.

      Peterman was arrested on a warrant Wednesday on Chester Street.

      Myrtle Beach Police stopped Mark Victor Powell, Jr. on a Bench Warrant about 11:10 p.m. Monday in the 400 block of 5th Avenue North.

      When they searched Powell, police say he had incendiary devices.

      Police put the possible explosive devices on the ground and called in the Horry County bomb squad to dispose of them.

      Powell was arrested for Possession of Incendiary Devices.

      Powell told officers that he got the devices from Peterman, according to the arrest warrant.

      Powell said there were other similar devices in Peterman's apartment on the coffee table.

      Police searched Peterman's apartment and discovered two PVC style end caps, "one of which had a hole drilled through it and a fuse inserted in the hole," according to the warrant.

      Police said the end caps and fuse were like the items found on Powell.

      Officers also discovered gun powder in a container on the coffee table.
