CRESTVIEW -- This morning federal investigators are working to figure out how *military* explosives ended up in a Crestview neighborhood.
The State Fire Marshals office says "C-4" was found in a wooded area near Martin Luther King Junior Avenue and Lloyd Street Sunday.
They believe the explosives belong to a man on active military duty - who was arrested in a domestic incident January 2nd.
The first cache was discovered on December 29, at the home of Vaughn Pottle. His girlfriend found the explosives while she was throwing out his stuff. He was charged with trying to murder her on Dec. 16.
This discovery was in Baker, not Crestview.
The second box was found Sunday night in the woods west of downtown Crestview.
The FBI is also helping in the investigation, but this is not considered to be a terrorist threat.
