UPDATE: Pipe Bombs on OKC train tracks?
By Associated Press
Oklahoma City, OK – Suspicious devices found along RR tracks in OKC
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma City police have made an arrest in connection with the discovery of three suspicious devices along railroad tracks in southeastern Oklahoma City.
Police say 33-year-old Chadwick Everett Baker was found near the scene Sunday night after the devices were found Sunday afternoon. He was booked into the Oklahoma County jail on three complaints of manufacturing a hoax homemade bomb.
Police were called about 5 p.m. Sunday by a man who said he saw another man throw the devices onto the tracks. Bomb technicians say the devices were fake but were made to look like pipe bombs.
The area was evacuated for a time and several trains were delayed while the area was cleared.
Police would not say what they believe Baker's motive was. He remained in jail Monday morning without bail and it was not known if he had an attorney.
