Tulsa bomb squad explodes hazardous material in north Tulsa

TULSA - The investigation into a north Tulsa home with explosives inside continued Tuesday morning.

The neighborhood near Pine and North Harvard is now safe for residents, but police still have to finish the original search warrant at the house.  

Officers will be back at the house Tuesday morning to search for stolen property.

Monday's bomb scare started when officers tracked a stolen car to the home at Pine and North Florence Place.

Once officers served the warrant they found a number of explosive materials inside the home.

The bomb squad was called out to assist.  They remained at the home until about midnight.

"Obviously we brought in the bomb squad robot," said Capt. Ryan Perkins with the Tulsa Police Department. "We were able to do some field testing and determine that this was in fact a high explosive that was contained inside the residence,"

At least three devices were detonated.

Police arrested 39-year-old Brian Larkins, 31-year-old Jessica Cason and 25-year-old Jason Rathburn at the home.  All three are all in jail this morning on drug and stolen property complaints.

Larkins is also jailed on a complaint of possessing explosive materials.

No one was injured.
