Two Arrested After Numerous Pipe Bombs Were Found at Boone County Home

Authorities found explosives on a property outside Madrid, IA, earlier today.

It all started with a traffic stop in Boone County. The driver, Leanna Haidsiak, consented to a search of her vehicle and the sheriff deputy found 3 or 4 potential explosives. Deputies obtained a warred for Haidsiak's home and ended up finding several pipe bombs at her home, as well as materials needed to produce more pipe bombs.

Haidsiak was arrested, along with Tjaden Mallory -- who also lives in another building on this property. Charges are pending while the Boone County Sheriff Department investigate this case with the assistance of the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms. Meanwhile, officials with the State Fire Marshall's Office are detonating each of the pipe bombs.
