FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – John Parker, 20, of Florence was denied bond by a judge 9 a.m. Saturday after being arrested for eight bomb counts, according to Corporal Appollonia Perkins with the Florence County Sheriff's Office.

However, the judge returned Saturday afternoon and set bond at $1 million, according to the Florence County Detention Center. 

Parker was arrested by Florence Police and charged on eight bomb counts of possess, manufacture, transport of a destructive device or explosive, or parts for damage, injury or death.

SLED agents and Florence Police took the explosives from a home near Pickford Lane and South Cashua Drive to a safe location to detonate them, according to Major Carlos Raines with the Florence Police Department.

"The devices that were found and they were brought to a location where they could be detonated by SLED's bomb Squad," Major Carlos Raines said.

Police responded to the domestic dispute at that home at about 3 a.m. Friday. Investigators said information was given to officers at that time, which led to a search warrant being obtained. When officers searched the home they found the devices inside.

"At that time, out of caution, we took precautionary measures and we evacuated some of the homes around that area and contacted SLED's bomb experts," Florence Police Chief Allen Heidler said.
