Houston Police Bomb Squad Trucks at 401 Eden Street in Corrigan
Dope, Stolen Merchandise, Bomb, CORRIGAN, August 15, 2017 - At around 7 pm on August 14, 2017, Officers Cody Hardy, Dana Vanya, and Tyler Johnson with Corrigan Police Department were dispatched to 401 Eden Street in Corrigan (off FM-287 West) to execute a search warrant. When the officers executed the search warrant they uncovered lots of stolen merchandise, a very large amount of K2 (aka fake weed, kush), and.... an explosive device. The officers wisely decided to halt the search and summon help. Detective Bert Sims was dispatched to the scene along with two Houston Police Department Bomb Squad Trucks and personnel, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Bomb specialists went into the home and used high tech equipment to scan the explosive device, assessed it, and disassembled it. The device's components were loaded into an evidence bag. Joel Reuben Lambright, Jr., 43, of Corrigan is facing felony charges of theft of property, possession of a controlled substance, and prohibited weapon (explosive device). Lambright was transported to Polk County Jail and booked in.
