Police say a couple arrested for explosives, guns and drugs has been caught with similar arsenal.

The Tulsa County Sheriff's Violent Crimes Unit busted Brian Larkins, 40, and Jessica Cason, 32, on suspicious of having explosive materials, 18 guns and meth.

Tulsa County court records show in July 2012, FOX23 News was on the scene at the couple's north Tulsa home where the Tulsa Bomb Squad found a stockpile of explosives and several guns.

Records show Larkins received a five-year deferred sentence and Cason received a two-year deferred sentence for the explosive and drug charges.

Since then, their neighbor Linda Robertson has slept well.

"With one eye open," said Robertson.

On Tuesday night, deputies found 18 guns, including rifles, pistols, guns and 3.5 pounds of explosive materials inside the home in the 4000 block of East 27th Street.

"I'm not very pleased with it," said Robertson. "I certainly didn't think this neighborhood would come to this."

FOX23 News has learned this case could turn into a federal case because of the guns.

Detectives are investigating what the couple was doing with the explosive materials.

The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office Violent Crimes Unit and the FBI worked together on the case and deputies said this
was an ongoing investigation that has lasted several months, leading up to a multi-jurisdictional search warrant.

Arrest reports show 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 charges.

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