JEMS: Texas EMT Charged with Possession of Destructive Device

The West Fertilizer plant explosion April 17 killed 15 people, injured hundreds and devastated a large chunk of the town of West, near Waco.

McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna says the Rangers report showed no evidence to link Bryce Ashley Reed to the blast. Reyna tells the Waco Tribune-Herald (http://bit.ly/152ojMr), however, that he still has more material to review.

Reed remains jailed on federal charges that he possessed bomb-making materials. He recently completed a court-ordered mental evaluation.
