Evacuated occupants were allowed to return to the Zuni Village RV park at 6:30 p.m. Friday. The park was cleared as a safety precaution as officials with multiple agencies worked together to process a motor home containing explosives.
“A total of 15 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were located, of varying sizes and designs. During the scene processing 10 of the IEDs were rendered safe in a vacant field just west of the RV park,” said deputy Kingman police chie Rusty Cooper. “The remaining 5, larger, IEDs have been removed and will be detonated at another location.”
Cooper said the motor home was towed away and will be secured as evidence for further investigation.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will be taking over as the lead agency of the investigation.
The motor home with the explosives belonged to Glenn Jones, 59. Authoritites believe he was killed in blasts that destroyed a vehicle and damaged a home Wednesday night in Panaca, Nevada.
