BRIDGETON (KMOV.com) -

A man accused of making pipe bombs in Bridgeton has a hatred for President Obama and praised Hitler, court documents say.

Douglas Herr, 44, allegedly told police Hitler was right. He was charged with unlawful possession, transport, manufacture, repair or sale of an illegal weapon.

Police believe he went to a Home Depot and bought a pipe 1.25 inches in diameter and asked the staff to cut into 7.5 inch sections. The employees became suspicious and called police.

Officers executed a search warrant for Herr’s hotel room and say they found materials for making a pipe bomb.
