Zane Bennett, 20, was arrested on a complaint of manufacturing an explosive. His girlfriend, Mariah Davis, is accused of shoplifting Lego sets from a Walmart near where she was stopped
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Tulsa Police Department were investigating what turned out to be a bomb in a vehicle near Kenosha (71st) Street and the Creek Turnpike in east Broken Arrow. An officer had stopped the vehicle because it was suspected of involvement in a shoplifting incident, according to Broken Arrow Police Department spokesman Christopher Walker.
A Walmart loss-prevention employee had told officers a woman, later identified by police as Davis, had stolen three Lego sets worth $289.94, according to a probable cause affidavit
The officer stopped the vehicle and saw the Lego sets in the backseat along with what appeared to be an explosive device, the affidavit states.
The bomb was described by officers as "four red 'Boom Sticks' with green fuses tied together. There was one bottle rocket in the middle the green fuses were tied to."
Bennett was arrested on a complaint of manufacturing an explosive, and Walker said he would be charged in Tulsa County District Court.
Davis was arrested on a petty larceny complaint. She told officers she is a member of the Muscogee tribe, so if charged, she would be tried in Muscogee Nation court.
