MIDLAND CITY, Ala. (WALA) - Just one day after the hostage standoff in Midland City, Ala. came to an end, authorities said investigators are still hard at work.
According to officials, bomb technicians with the FBI, the Alabama Bureau of Investigation and the Dothan Police Department continue to search the crime scene for explosive hazards.
They said two devices were located and disrupted on February 5. Investigators said one device was located inside the bunker, and the other device was located in the plastic pipe suspect Jimmy Lee Dykes told the negotiators to use to communicate with him.
The search for hazards is expected to continue through Wednesday.
