Camden County resident Joshua Crook has been charged with a felony weapons count after a deputy reportedly found a pipe bomb in his vehicle.

The 31-year-old was also charged with felony counts of possession of controlled substance, resisting arrest and possession and transport of a weapon.

Crook also faces misdemeanor counts of unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

After a 3 a.m. chase stemming from a traffic stop Thursday, a deputy arrested Crook for driving on a suspended license, according to a Camden County press release. Upon searching the vehicle, the deputy discovered a scale and a white crystalline substance. As the deputy continued his search of the vehicle, he discovered what appeared to be a pipe bomb.

The deputy backed away from the vehicle and the Missouri State Highway Patrol Bomb Squad was contacted and rendered the explosive harmless.

The subject was taken into custody and is being held at the Camden County Adult Detention Center.
