Explosives Removed from Bellevue Home

Newschannel 6 is on the scene of an investigation in Bellevue, where officials have confirmed the presence of an object labeled "high explosive" under a home.

The object, at a resident located near 4th and Ross Street, was discovered just after noon when a remodeling contractor was looking under a porch.

Clay County Sheriff Kenny Lemons says the area has been cordoned off, but no evacuations have been ordered at this time. He has been in touch with Fort Sill during this investigation.

Around 3 p.m. crews on scene confirmed to Newschannel 6 that six sticks of commercial grade explosives without blasting caps were removed from the neighborhood.

Clay County Sheriff Kenny Lemons tells us the people who helped safely recover the explosives were two bomb techs, one from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol office in Lawton and one from an office in Denton County who is associated with the FBI.
