3:40 p.m. Residents are returning to their homes and SW 79 is reopened after bomb squad technicians cleared the property at 2833 SW 79 of potentially explosive materials, police Capt. Dexter Nelson said.

1:30 p.m. Multiple houses in southwest Oklahoma City were evacuated Tuesday while the bomb squad from the police department searched a home for explosives.

Capt. Dexter Nelson said Roger Sherman, the occupant of the home on SW 79, was arrested in November on suspicion of operating a meth lab in the house. While searching the house in November, police found multiple explosives. Nelson said they received a tip from neighbors that some explosives remained in the house, so the bomb squad was called in to search the property.
