Explosives found in pickup near Kansas Statehouse

Explosives found in pickup parked outside of capitol

TOPEKA, Kan. - Several homemade bombs were found yesterday in a pickup truck parked near the Kansas State House that had specialty license plates issued only to US military paratroopers, and police said they arrested the owner inside an underground tunnel connecting the Capitol to an office building.

Capitol Police spokesman Patrick Saleh said the incident was not connected to another arrest yesterday of a man who allegedly phoned in a threat to Governor Sam Brownback’s office from a Topeka motel.
