"Very devastating" is how Bradford Police Chief Ollie Bond described the amount of damage that could have been done by explosive materials found behind a building on Old U.S. 45 East Thursday morning. Bond said police were still searching for the owner of the material Thursday afternoon.Of course, if you remember, Bradford was devastated by tornados earlier this year so apparently they had to seek assistance from other agencies in the area . I haven't heard anything else about this, but I know our canine unit was dispatched. We will have to wait and see what all of this means.
"It could have been very devastating, considering some of the things and materials that (the unknown suspects) had (left at the scene) and where they got it from, off the Internet, to produce the stuff,'' Bond said. ''They were pretty much in the midst of completing their objective."
Bond said he knows what the intended target was because the suspects left information behind. He declined to say what that information is."We appreciate them leaving their target," Bond said. "We appreciate their hard work (of leaving the information behind)."
