Feds investigate explosion at USAF recruiting office

"Roden wanted to quit the Air Force and join the U.S. Marines, however, the U.S. Marines would not accept Roden", the arrest affidavit states.

Benjamin Roden is being held in the Tulsa County jail. A judge is expected transfer him into the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service, said Senior Inspector John Gage.

But a federal agent later said authorities were investigating the incident as a criminal act, according to News on 6 in Tulsa, Okla.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Jessi Rice said Tuesday that a person of interest had been taken into custody at a Tulsa- area apartment complex, but she said she couldn't provide the individual's name and that investigators were questioning the person.

Federal and local authorities took Roden into custody Tuesday afternoon initially as a person of interest at the Sand Dollar apartment complex near 61st Street and Riverside Drive in south Tulsa. No explosives were found in the area. If the incident is determined to be a case of domestic terrorism, the FBI will take over the investigation.

Investigators recovered evidence, including a pipe, from the scene.

"At this point, we don't know if it was a disgruntled employee, an act of domestic terrorism, just someone playing games".

"Potentially, we're looking at weapons of mass destruction charges, explosive devices charges", she told reporters.

The door of the center was blown off in the blast and landed in a parking space in front of the storefront and soot-covered windows.

On Sunday, a day before the explosion outside the office in Bixby, a suburb of Tulsa, he wrote ominously on Facebook: 'That government vehicle looks handsome setting outside that office in Tulsa.

No suspects have been identified and a motive is not yet known, they said.

"That is a big deal to us", she said. The witness said it appeared there was a "pipe bomb" inside the backpack. KGOU was unable to independently confirm the nature of the explosives.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI's Oklahoma City field office at 405-290-7770.
