Crowley Police have made three arrests into a matter which has been under investigation for the past several weeks. Police say there are possibly more arrest to come. The incident stems from a September 5th incident which occurred on Fairway Dr. in Crowley.
Police received a complaint that an object believed to be a homemade bomb had been located on the property. Crowley Police along with Crowley Fire Department and State Police Hazmat responded to the scene.
"Our investigation into this matter has revealed that the persons involved in this matter were juveniles. There was no intent to cause damage or injury, however state law was violated under Manufacturing of an Incendiary Device" stated Chief K.P. Gibson.
The three juveniles were charged and are pending court action. Other juveniles are being looked at for their possible role in this incident. "Our concern comes as these young people do not understand the seriousness of what could have happened. They thought that they were playing a joke, but in reality put fear into citizens" stated Chief Gibson. "My concern is that someone, including the young people who made these devices could have been injured. Mixing chemicals to make an explosive device is not a game and will not be tolerated" stated Chief Gibson.
Due to the suspects being juveniles, their names cannot be released.
