A Murrieta man was arrested Tuesday after police and sheriff bomb technicians allegedly found destructive devices in his residence.
Kenneth P. Haley, 31, was taken into custody following a search of the home in the 23000 block of Corinth Drive, Murrieta police Lt. Tony Conrad said in a news release.
Haley was also arrested on suspicion of attempted arson, possessing stolen Military property and possession of cocaine, Conrad said.
Murrieta police first responded to the home at about 1:20 a.m. when a 911 call was transferred from CHP, Conrad said.
"The caller stated she was in fear for her safety as her live-in boyfriend was threatening to burn their home down," Conrad said.
The address was narrowed down to the 23800 block of Corinth Drive in Murrieta, the lieutenant said.
"Murrieta officers arrived on scene, located the residence in question and entered looking for the caller or anyone else that may be injured inside the home," Conrad said. "The residence was not occupied, however, officers did notice several explosive devices, narcotics and a distinct smell of gasoline."
As a result, the Murrieta Police Department Detective Bureau and Riverside County Sheriff's Explosive Device Team were asked to respond, Conrad said.
While a containment was held at the location, Conrad said Haley was stopped by patrol officers as he drove through the area.
He was detained and arrested pending the results of the search warrant that had been obtained by detectives at 8:30 a.m., according to Conrad.
Haley is being held at Southwest Detention Center; bail information was not immediately available from sheriff's jail records.
Police did not elaborate on the type of destructive devices allegedly found in the home, but said all were removed before the residence was rendered safe.
The case is being handled by Murrieta police Detective Vic Carrillo. Anyone with information pertaining to the investigation was encouraged to contact Carrillo at 951-461-6311. Anonymous tips can be called into We-Tip at 1-800-78-CRIME.

A neighbor on Corinth Drive said he saw police presence at the home at about 5:30 a.m. when he took his dog for a walk.
He described the neighborhood as quiet, and that he knew most of his neighbors. He said, however, he did not know the residents of the home that was searched.
