SAPULPA, Okla. – An Oklahoma father and son were arrested on Wednesday morning after investigators discovered two pipe bombs at the Creek County Courthouse.
Officers say they began looking into the case when a woman discovered that someone had slashed her tires at the courthouse on Tuesday evening.
When she looked inside her vehicle, she told police that she noticed something suspicious on her console. She told dispatchers that she believed that someone put a pipe bomb inside her SUV.
The Tulsa bomb squad was called to the scene and safely removed two pipe bombs that were found in her SUV.
