Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were in a Ray County community Thursday evening after an investigation into possible explosives led them to serve a Federal Search Warrant.

According to ATF Public information Officer, John Ham, the main concern was the safety of any individuals inside the Orrick residence.

Officer Ham adds this is not connected to an incident earlier Thursday in Missouri City, which was handled by the Independence, Mo. Bomb Squad and Clay Co. authorities when a suspected explosive device was found outside a residence there.

The ATF could not disclose what the allegations in the search warrant are, but some reports from a KMZU listener say the individual was overheard talking about using explosives, prompting area residents to call authorities..
