Paramedic Who Responded to Deadly Texas Blast Charged

Posted: Updated:

A Texas paramedic who helped evacuate people on the night of the deadly fertilizer plant explosion in West is charged with possessing bomb-making materials including a pipe and chemicals.
 
A criminal complaint unsealed Friday says Bryce Reed has been charged with possession of a destructive device. Law enforcement officials haven't connected the charge to the fire or the explosion at the West Fertilizer Co. last month that killed 14 people.
 
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives special agent Douglas Kunze says in the complaint that the McLennan County Sheriff's Office was called earlier this week to a home near West where they found a pipe, a variety of chemicals and fuses. 
 
They say the objects belonged to Reed, who didn't enter a plea when he appeared in court Friday.  (AP)
