Spokane police and federal investigators are searching a house in the 2100 block of East Lacrosse Avenue as part of the investigation into last week’s bomb that blew up under a car on North Monroe Street.

No one was injured in the explosion, which occurred around 4:30 a.m. Saturday.

Police Sgt. Lydia Taylor said Spokane officers are on hand with bomb disposal crews as well as the SWAT team as a precaution due to the nature of the investigation.

Agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation and The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are on the scene as well.

Taylor said it was unclear if anyone had been arrested but said investigators are now using a bomb-detecting robot to search the house before officers enter.
