Bomb materials recovered in Idaho

A 20-year-old man charged in connection with an explosion that killed a man last weekend dumped bomb-making materials in a rural area in North Idaho, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office announced Wednesday.

Christapher A. Harris was released from jail on his own recognizance Monday as detectives continued to investigate an explosion outside a costume party at 3110 E. Denison-Chattaroy Road that killed Cody Hathaway, 28.

Investigators believe Hathaway was checking on an ignited bomb that failed to detonate when the device exploded. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another partygoer admitted to igniting the device. Detectives searched Harris’ apartment at 7723 W. Sunset Highway and his Chevrolet truck after a friend said he’d helped Harris load bomb making materials into the vehicle after Hathaway’s death.

Detectives found materials near a road in Osborne, Idaho, on Tuesday that included evidence of a methamphetamine lab. The investigation is ongoing.
