Nicholas J. Scott, 18, of Bellevue was arrested Thursday and booked into the Sarpy County Jail after officers met with him as part of a BPD investigation, according to a BPD press release issued Friday.
Police said Scott had been taken out of school by a parent before officers were able to speak with him, according to the press release, but that Scott was later contacted and agreed to meet with officers on Thursday. It was at this meeting that he was arrested, the release states.
Officers later conducted a search of Scott's bedroom as part of the investigation, finding "various unassembled materials that are commonly known to be used in the manufacturing of explosive devices," which were seized by Bellevue Police as evidence, the release states.
"The (Bellevue) Police Department would like to publicly thank those who came forward with the information regarding this case," the release states. "The safety guideline of 'Hear Something, Say Something' played an extremely important role in quickly bringing this incident to a safe resolve."
