TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WISH) – A man was arrested Saturday night after an “improvised explosive” was found outside a door of the Terre Haute Department.

Curtis Hogan was arrested and charged with possession of a destructive device and attempted arson. No additional information about Hogan was immediately released by the police.

Police were made aware of a fire on the west side of the Terre Haute Police Department, 1211 Wabash Ave., at 12:40 a.m. on Saturday. That’s a few blocks east of the University campus.

When the fire was extinguished, the authorities found that the device was a gas container that was converted into an explosive with “accelerators and projectiles,” the police said in a Facebook post.

No one was injured, but law enforcement agencies across the region have been notified. The department consulted the FBI in its investigation.

A man’s surveillance camera footage was released Saturday night and Hogan was taken into custody hours later, Sgt. Ryan Adamson said in a Twitter post.

Anyone with information was asked to call Detective Brad Rumsey at (812) 538-3766.
