Man Arrested in South Lubbock Bomb Scare

A 26-year-old man caused a bomb scare in south Lubbock Tuesday morning when police found a homemade explosive in his car.

Police stopped Jeremy Womack's car around 1 a.m. Tuesday morning near University and South Loop 289. That's when they discovered the device and immediately closed down a portion of the loop and evacuated a nearby shopping center. The bomb squad moved in, retrieved the device and then detonated it in a remote location.

Womack is in the Lubbock County Jail charged with possession of an explosive device, possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of drugs. His bond has been set at $11,500.

NewsChannel 11 looked into Womack's criminal history and found that in 1998, he went on trial for murder, but claimed it was self defense. A jury found him not guilty.
