UPDATED: There were no explosives in the story. See more recent article.

Probation officers and Port Clinton police visited the man's home in the 7000 block of Applewood Drive Wednesday afternoon after the man's ex-wife told police she had receive a strange letter from him.

"It had judges' names on it and was a perceived threat," said Danbury Township police Chief Mike Meisler.

While doing a walk through the man's house, officers came across three personal safes, two small and one large, that the man had labeled with masking tape and permanent marker as explosives, Meisler said.

"We have it contained at this point, charges are pending," he said.

Residents in the surrounding Perryview Estates neighborhood had been contacted by the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office about the possible danger, and school children who reside in the area are being kept at the school until the bomb squad can arrive to assess the situation.

Have you noticed that people have exchanged their guns for bombs instead? New bomb control law goes into effect immediately.
