They said the Tulsa Police Department, ATF, and FBI responded and made the vehicle “safe.”

Back in Henryetta, the ATF and Oklahoma Highway Patrol Bomb Squad arrived to the suspects home for a federal search and found a stockpile of explosive devices.

Surrounding homes were immediately evacuated, police said.

Once police determined it was safe, residents were reportedly allowed back in their homes.

Due to this being an ongoing investigation, the ATF will not be releasing any names at this time.
