Press Release – JOHNSON COUNTY SHERIFF’s DEPARTMENT

I.E.D.s Found During Arrest

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office was executing a search warrant this afternoon in the Flat Rock area when investigators discovered three explosive devices on the premises.

Investigators acted quickly to secure the area and contacted the Fort Smith Bomb Squad. Specially trained personnel from the Fort Smith Bomb Squad responded promptly to our request and identified the explosive devices as “I.E.D.’s”.

The explosives were disposed of on scene by the Fort Smith Bomb Squad in a secure manner that presented no harm or danger to anyone in the area. We would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to these professional men and women for the work they do, and for assisting our agency in protecting our community.

Colton Bosnick, the owner of the residence, was arrested yesterday on unrelated charges to the explosive devices. An investigation has begun into the explosives and we will update you with further information as it is available.
