The items were found following an investigation into small, low-grade explosive devices that were set off in a neighborhood near the Route 22 corridor in Union last week.
Police set up surveillance in that area Monday when a man, later identified as Intrabartolo, was spotted allegedly tossing an explosive device that resembled a large firecracker out of his moving vehicle.
Intrabartolo was arrested, and a loaded .32-caliber handgun and explosive materials were found in his car..
A search of Intrabartolo's home on Girard Place in Union Township subsequently turned up two additional handguns, a shotgun, additional explosive materials and gunpowder, investigators say.
Police say no one was injured during the investigation.
