WEST, TX – A sealed warrant leads to the arrest of a first responder in the central Texas town of West.

Bryce Reed was booked into the McLennan County jail at 5:10 a.m. Friday. He faces a federal charge of possession of a destructive device.

Authorities indicate the 31-year-old had a pipe bomb.

Reed was one of the first to arrive at the catastrophic explosion at the fertilizer plant in April. He was assigned to be the incident commander at the scene.

It is too early to determine if this federal charge is in any way connected to the explosion. Sources indicate they did not believe he was but he may get a second look now from federal and state agencies.
