Police: Explosives found in NKY home

CRITTENDEN, KY (FOX19) - Kenton County Police say explosive devices were found inside a man's home after he was arrested early Friday morning.

Jeremiah Ruby, 38, resisted arrest and had to be tased when police responded to his Crittenden home for a domestic dispute, according to Detective Andrew Schierberg.

Police found drug paraphernalia at the scene, prompting a search of the home. Schierberg said they found explosive devices, decoy explosives and bomb-making materials.

Officers determined the amount of the material didn't pose immediate danger to neighbors.

Schierberg said the devices did not appear to be recreational explosives or fireworks. It's unclear why Ruby had the explosive materials.

The suspect faces drug charges in addition to resisting arrest, possessing explosives without a permit and menacing.
