— As Walworth County sheriff's deputies were arresting a Genoa City man at his residence last month on manufacturing heroin charges, they notice a pipe with a hole drilled in one end, officials say.

The Milwaukee County Bomb Squad was called to the scene and identified the pipe as an improvised explosive device, or IED.

Malik D. Iseini, 33, of N1985 Hafs Road, has been charged with three counts of manufacturing heroin, one count of possession of heroin with intent to deliver, felony possession of a firearm, possession of an IED, resisting an officer and possession of drug paraphernalia. The charges carry enhanced repeater penalties.

Iseini is scheduled for a May 1 preliminary hearing in Walworth County Court. He is being held at Walworth County Jail on a $10,000 cash bond.

The criminal complaint said that as deputies were executing a search warrant in Iseini's mobile home Mar. 19, they found 23 foil bundles containing a substance that tested positive in a field test for heroin. Deputies also found a section of PVC pipe with a hole "that appeared to be for a fuse," according to the complaint.

The search warrant was obtained after a confidential informant purchased heroin from Iseini in late February, according to the complaint.

The bomb squad identified the pipe as an IED and disposed of it, according to the complaint. Deputies said they also found a .22-caliber rifle in Iseini's mobile home.
