Virginia: Authorities find bomb-making materials, partial IED, smoke bombs and firework mortars inside Henrico home during investigation


Authorities found bomb-making materials, a partial improvised explosive device, smoke bombs and firework mortars inside a Henrico County home last week, according to a search warrant. The investigation forced some nearby residents to leave their homes until the next day.
