Police find 100 explosives at township home

HUBBARD TOWNSHIP — Hubbard township and city police found more than 100 explosive devices Monday at a property off Hubbard Bedford Road, where an unidentified man taken into custody is expected to face various charges.

Hubbard Township police Chief Greg Tarr said the owner of the home where the incident occurred recently died. He said it was not clear if the devices were brought to the scene or were already in the house.

Tarr said police initially received a call of a breaking and entering after noon at the home on Hubbard Bedford, where a man was seen trying to get into the house and then attempting to flee in a truck.

Tarr said the man, whose name was not released, was taken in for questioning and charges are pending. Tarr said a woman also is believed involved and is being sought.

The chief said a search of the property found more than 100 explosive devices inside the house, on the property and in the truck. He said items included containers and black powder.

The Youngstown Bomb Squad and agents with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives assisted at the scene.

Police closed the road for safety of the public.
