BOGALUSA, LA (WVUE) - Bomb-making materials were found Wednesday during a search of a Bogalusa home, according to the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office.

Bogalusa Police found the materials, along with pipe bombs and a zip gun at a home on Lona Rester Place.

Washington Parish sheriff's deputies were called by Bogalusa police to provide backup as they went to serve an arrest warrant at the home earlier Wednesday. The arrest was peaceful, but after the suspect was taken into custody, police discovered the explosives.

The FBI has been called in and are sending bomb technicians to the scene.
