MUSCOGEE COUNTY, Ga. After a four-hour standoff, Muscogee County Sheriff's Office deputies subdued a Harris County man by shooting him with rubber pellets and arrested him early Saturday morning for allegedly manufacturing and planting pipe bombs at an apartment complex from which he had recently been evicted.

According to a statement from the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office, Raymond Joseph Geoffrion, 56, was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault on an officer, possession of an explosive device with an intent to kill or injure, possession of an explosive device, possession of an explosive device by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The sheriff's office began the investigation late Friday afternoon after the Harris County Sheriff's Office requested the Muscogee County bomb squad respond to an incident on Fortune Road in Hamilton regarding three suspected improvised explosive devices, or IEDs.
