Texas man arrested after authorities find homemade bombs in home

A Texas man has been arrested after authorities found homemade explosives in his house Tuesday morning.

John Christopher Crawson, 47, was busted around 8 a.m. after investigators searched his home in Williamson County and found several bombs, according to the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office.

Crawson is charged with making a terroristic threat against a family member.

Neighbors say he was going through a bitter divorce with his wife, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

Several homes in the area were evacuated as a precaution, the sheriff’s office said.

The Austin Police Department’s bomb squad and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were also at the scene to help remove the devices.
