HOUSTON - An Oklahoma man was arrested and charged on Friday with trying to destroy a natural gas pipeline with a homemade bomb, the FBI said.

The Oklahoma City division of the FBI said on Friday that Daniel Wells Herriman, 40, of Konawa, Oklahoma, called Seminole County 911 emergency response on Wednesday and said he had made the device at his home.

Hours before Herriman made that call, employees of the company that runs the  above-ground pipeline, Houston-based Enerfin Resources, found the device and alerted authorities, the FBI said.

The device did not explode and the pipeline was undamaged.
