Fort Hood Bomb Squad Called to Copperas Cove Home for the Second Time This Week
Copperas Cove Police and the Fort Hood Bomb Squad were called to a home on Meggs Street Wednesday night. It is the second time this week that officers have responded in order to secure a suspicious device.
Authorities arrived at the home around 8 p.m. after someone reported “suspicious items” inside. They evacuated several nearby homes and requested a bomb squad to clear the home. A robot was sent in to inspect the property before it was cleared around 2 a.m. No one was injured.
Police arrested Jason Alan Garthwaite Sr. and charged him with abandoning or endangering a child and possession of a prohibited item.
No further details were available Thursday morning.
