'All Clear' Given After Suspicious Materials Found In NW OKC Home

Posted: Updated:

The bomb squad has given the "all clear" after investigating suspicious materials found during investigation of NW OKC home. 

Authorities tell News 9 the investigation began as a follow-up on a kidnapping call, at a home in the 2700 block of NW 17th St. Police say the investigation started around 6 a.m. Friday, when a man flagged down a passerby claiming he had been beaten and held against his will in a nearby home.

Investigators were called to the home, but when they arrived they say a suspect ran. Officers caught up with the man and found drugs on him. Police also say four other people were found inside the home and are being questioned. No identities have been released at this time.

Police cordoned off a section of the neighborhood, from N. Ross Ave. to N. Linn Ave. between NW 16th St. and NW 17th St., while the bomb squad investigated. The area has since be re-opened, but police investigators expect to remain at the house for a few more hours.

So far police have not said what was found, but did say it was deemed safe.
