Local man charged after explosive devices found in home
A Killeen man was in custody Wednesday charged with possession of an improvised explosive device after the discovery of two suspicious devices in a home that led to the evacuation of a neighborhood.
Christopher Rodney Lee Deborde, 36, was arrested Monday on a warrant charging possession of prohibited weapons/improvised explosive device (pipe bomb), police announced Wednesday.
A $200,000 bond was recommended.
Deborde was in the Killeen City Jail Wednesday, awaiting transfer to the Bell County Jail, police said.
A Bell County constable discovered suspected explosive devices on July 11 while serving an eviction notice at home in the 4400 block of Maggie Drive.
Surrounding homes were evacuated and the Fort Hood Explosive Ordnance Disposal team responded to the scene and cleared and removed two suspicious devices without incident.
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents took possession of the devices, police said.
