WACO, Texas (AP) — A former first-responder in the Central Texas town devastated by a deadly fertilizer plant explosion last month is due in court Wednesday on allegations that he possessed materials for a pipe bomb.
Authorities haven't linked Bryce Reed to the April 17 blast that killed at least 14 people, injured more than 100 others and leveled part of the town of West, Tex.
Federal agents arrested Reed last week and charged him with possessing an explosive device. His attorney says Reed intends to plead not guilty.
