West, Texas Paramedic Bryce Reed to Plead Not Guilty to Pipe Bomb Charges

Bryce Reed, the West, Texas paramedic who was one of the first responders to the fertilizer plant explosion that killed 15 people, will plead not guilty at federal court on charges of possessing materials that could be used to build a pipe bomb, reports CNN.

Reed’s arrest at 2:00 a.m. on Friday, 11 May, came just hours after authorities announced that they were launching a criminal investigation into the West, Texas fertilizer plant explosion. The two have not yet been confirmed as linked by authorities.

Reed did not enter a plea yesterday during his first hearing, the news of his guilty plea was released by his lawyer Jonathan Sibley.

The McLennan County Sheriff, who arrested Reed, told the Waco Tribune:

no evidence has been uncovered to indicate any connection to the events surrounding the fire and subsequent explosion . . . and the arrest of Bryce Reed by the ATF
