Investigation turns up bomb-making materials at Boise home

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The investigation of a domestic dispute led Boise police to discover more than 100 pounds of bomb-making material in the crawl space of the suspect's house. Police say 32-year-old Joshua J. Finch was arrested Wednesday morning on suspicion of two counts of felony kidnapping. During the kidnapping investigation, police learned Finch might have explosive materials. A search of a residence found bomb-making materials that officials say were in various bomb-making stages. Several roads in the area of Finch's house were closed and police asked the residents of 21 homes to voluntarily evacuate. Residents were able to return to their homes at around midnight. Officials say charges related to the explosives are expected to be filed Thursday.
