BOMB MATERIALS IN HOME TIED TO AIRLINE WORKER

An American Airlines mechanic was charged Tuesday with possessing bomb-making material after explosives and assault rifles allegedly were found at his home, along with white supremacist and anti-government literature.

Jere Wayne Haney was arraigned on a felony charge of possessing components of explosives.

Haney, 42, was stopped Monday at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport for a traffic violation, and airport police said they found dozens of airline serving-size liquor bottles in his car.

With Haney's permission, the officers searched his apartment in Grapevine for other bottles.

City investigators said they found a 50-pound bag of ammonium nitrate, which can be combined with fuel oil to form an explosive.

Police also found a dozen weapons, including four assault-style rifles, and 62 boxes of ammunition, along with white supremacist and anti-government literature that included a book on bomb making, police spokesman Bob Murphy said.
