The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office Violent Crimes Task Force and the FBI found drugs, guns and explosives.

Brian Larkins, 40 and Jessica Cason, 32, were taken into custody in connection to the case.

FOX23 News was the first on the scene in the 4000 block of East 27th Street Tuesday night. 

The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit served a search warrant and arrest reports show in a traffic stop they found 3½ pounds of stable explosives and 30 grams of high explosives. They also found 18 firearms and meth and money on Larkins. (The arrest report originally stated 13.57 pounds of stable explosives but the Sheriff's Office corrected it to 3½ pounds)

The Tulsa Police Department Bomb Squad and the ATF assisted in the search warrant.

Deputies have arrested a man and a woman from inside the home. Neighbors say that man had just returned home a few days ago from doing time for drugs.

The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office said this was an ongoing investigation that has lasted several months, leading up to this multijurisdictional search warrant.

Arrest reports shows Larkins is being held on more than $100,000 bond and facing manufacturing and possessing explosives, drugs and gun charges. Cason is being held on more than $15,000 bond facing drugs and using a surveillance system.

Look at the time of my first comment, and the time the story was updated with additional information. Fox23 must enjoy making it's viewers look stupid by re-writing stories but leaving comments based on the old stories intact.

i think its clear the high explosives being the key meant it was more then black powder. regardless a felon in a home with firearms is illegal.

"3½ pounds of explosives" could be three cans of black powder for antique firearms -- which would be perfectly legal, but throw in a joint and he could be made to look like a terrorist. You really have to read between the lines when the only information is coming from some secretive "task force"
