January 19, 2014
AUSTIN, Texas - Authorities have searched a Central Texas home after an
explosive device was found nearby earlier in the week.
The Austin American-Statesman reports that those searching the home Friday
included local officials as well as federal agents from the FBI and the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The home is near where a bomb containing C-4, a military-grade explosive not
available to the public, was detonated Wednesday by the Austin Police Department
bomb squad. A resident had alerted a Hays County deputy constable to the device.
No arrests have been made, and officials did not provide any further details
about the search.
