Boone Police Captain William Greene believes the owner
of an abandoned home on Junaluska Road had no knowledge of the possible
explosive material it contained.
The investigation is ongoing as to who put the
materials in the home. An anonymous tip led Boone Police Officers and the
Wilkes County Bomb Squad to search the home earlier this week after an
anonymous tip. Officials discovered a rifle and what could be explosives. The
materials are currently being tested to determine if they’re actually
explosives. Testing could take several days.
