Arsenal found in Ohio home

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — About 35 pipe bombs, an assortment of firearms, and hundreds of rounds of ammunition were found in a former doctor's apartment following two loud explosions, police said Wednesday.

Authorities, who found the arsenal Monday night, said they don't know why he had the weapons or whether he planned to use them.

Mark Campano, 56, was charged Wednesday with one count of unlawful possession of a pipe bomb, according to assistant U.S. Attorney Bill Edwards. Campano appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Benita Pearson, waived a preliminary hearing and was held on the charge by federal marshals.

Rescuers try to save man stuck in cave

SALT LAKE CITY — Rescuers chipped away with air-powered tools in a narrow tunnel Wednesday to free a man trapped upside down about 150 feet below ground in a popular Utah cave.

Utah County sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon said John Jones, 26, of Stansbury Park, became stuck about 700 feet into the narrow cave, known as Nutty Putty, at about 9 p.m. Tuesday while spelunking with a group of 11 people.

Jones was stuck with his head below his feet in an L-shaped area of the cave known as "Bob's Push" that is only about 18 inches wide and 10 inches high for about 19 hours, Cannon said.

Jones was finally freed from that position Wednesday afternoon, but Cannon said Jones remained in a confined space and it would be several hours before he was freed.

Cannon said Jones is about six feet tall and weighs between 180 and 200 pounds.
