The F.B.I. has taken over the investigation after metro-east authorities allegedly found bomb-making materials at a rural O'Fallon home.
The St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department searched the home of an O'Fallon Township High School student using bomb sniffing dogs Wednesday afternoon. There's no word what led to the search at the home in the 900 block of Scott Troy Road.
O’Fallon Township High School was locked down for about an hour and a half while the school was searched. Police say the action was precautionary because there had been no threat against the school.
O'Fallon Police questioned a student who lives in the home where the bomb-making materials were allegedly found, along with several of his friends. The student who lives in the home was arrested. There's no word yet on charges.
