Jackson County Bomb Plot is Thwarted
A Jackson County bomb plot has been unraveled, and the criminal complaint says the suspect threatened to blow up a bomb on an elementary school playground. 20-year old Blake Ryan Garnes of Evans is charged with terrorist threats and possession of an incendiary device, according to the complaint. It also details the bomb that he had built from scratch, and includes threats to detonate the bomb at his family's home and at the elementary school playground. Notes were also found outlining a dark obsession with death, misery, and killing others. The Kanawha County bomb squad was part of the raid on Garnes’ home in Evans.
