ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been arrested after police discovered explosives inside a residence in east Roswell.

New Mexico State Police bomb technicians removed the explosive material during a 14-hour incident that began with the execution of a search warrant in an unrelated case Thursday.

The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is assisting in the investigation and authorities say formal federal charges are expected to be filed soon against 23-year-old Isaac J. Salas.

Authorities say Salas lives in a detached secondary residence on the property where the explosives were found.

Roswell police served a search warrant in connection to a recent larceny case in which a gun had been stolen.

Authorities say experts are trying to determine the type of explosive material that was found.
