CHICKASHA, Okla. (KFOR) – A Wister man was arrested in Chickasha, Friday, after he was found to be in possession of an explosive device.

Christopher Michael Lee, 41, was arrested on suspicion of possession of an explosive device and stalking, according to a Chickasha Police Department news release.

Chickasha police were contacted at around 1:50 p.m. Friday and notified that a man had an explosive device and was exhibiting “bizarre stalking behavior,” according to the news release.

Officers went to Holiday Inn Express, 2610 S. 4th St., where they located the suspect’s vehicle and then “detained” a woman and two men.
