OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City police are investigating the possible presence of hazardous materials in a police vehicle and an officer’s home following an arrest in an alleged murder-for-hire case.

Television station KWTV reports (https://bit.ly/Ql3FIf ) that police on Friday shut down a street near a gas station where the vehicle was parked. Investigators were also checking the officer’s home near Norman.

Police say the vehicle held the murder-for-hire suspect, and the officer was involved in transporting the suspect.

Police and the FBI are investigating 30-year-old Preston Rhoads for solicitation for murder. Officers went to his house on Thursday to serve a warrant and called the hazardous materials team out once they got inside.

Investigators say they are clearing the home of weapons and dangerous materials but have not said what those materials are.
