Man Charged With Possessing Bomb Materials in Brea
A 47-year-old man suspected of having bomb-making materials in his car during a traffic stop in Brea this week was charged Thursday with four felonies. Saleh Ali was arrested Tuesday when a Brea police officer pulled him over at about 9 p.m. for having an expired registration on his vehicle, Brea Police Lt. Adam Hawley said. "During the traffic stop, the officer keyed in on a couple of suspicious items in the car he believed to be an explosive device," Hawley said. "He detained the driver out of an abundance of caution, locked down a little bit of the area and called out sheriff's bomb squad deputies." The deputies destroyed the suspected explosive devices at the scene, Hawley said. Source
