Newly-obtained search warrants and a probable cause affidavit are shedding light on how police were able to connect a man to more than a dozen explosive devices found around downtown Brevard in March.
It all started the morning of Sunday, March 14, when Brevard Police received multiple reports of a suspected improvised explosive device, or IED, on the property of First Baptist Church of Brevard. The church’s security team had found the device and extinguished it before it detonated.
After a search of the area by Brevard police, the Transylvania County Sheriff’s Department, State Bureau of Investigation and FBI, a total of 18 IEDs were located, some of which were made of cardboard tubes, PVC pipe and electrical tape.
