Evacuated Neighborhood Gets "All Clear"
A neighborhood is evacuated as Police investigate a report of explosives in a home in Southwest Oklahoma City.
Police evacuated the neighborhood surrounding 2833 SW 79th street around 9:30 Tuesday morning while investigating a report of explosives in the home.
By 3:00 p.m., police had cleared the scene and neighbors were allowed to return to their homes.
Police say the reason for the evacuation was a previous investigation.
In November 2012, police arrested Roger Sherman, the man pictured above, while investigating him on Methamphetamine charges and for violating conditions of a bond. Police say as they were investigating, they found a pipe bomb at the address.
Investigators recently discovered more information about evidence or contraband that was still in the house. They returned Tuesday to investigate but were accompanied by the bomb squad because of the previous discovery of explosives. The property was cleared of any explosive materials. SW 79th street was reopened around 3:00 p.m. and residents were able to return to their homes.
Officers are still at the house as they continue to search for more evidence.
Sherman remains in the Oklahoma County Jail on methamphetamine charges.

By DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the nation must do more than just remember its fallen heroes on Memorial Day.
In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says the country must care for the loved ones the fallen leave behind. He says the country must also make sure that all veterans receive the care and benefits they have earned.
Obama says that, above all, the armed forces must have the support needed to carry out their missions at home and abroad.
In the Republican address, Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe thanks the nation for its prayers and support following Monday's deadly tornado in his home state. He recalls past natural and man-made disasters in Oklahoma and says that while the state was hard hit, "we're not knocked out."
