Domestic call leads to drugs, bomb charges for parents

DADE CITY — Shane and Jessica Williams, a young married couple from Dade City, argued about Shane not having a job and fought and bit each other on the afternoon of Aug. 15, according to the Dade City Police Department.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found cockroaches, animal feces, soiled diapers, drugs, knives and a pipe bomb inside the home — along with the couple's 7-month-old infant and their 2-year-old child, a report states.

The pipe bomb, which was in a dresser drawer in the master bedroom of their home in the 38000 block of Countryside Place, was disarmed by the Tampa Bomb Squad, the report states.

Shane Williams, 21, fled the scene, authorities said.

Jessica Williams, 20, was arrested for two counts of child neglect, domestic battery, and possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She was released from jail the next day.

Shane Williams was arrested Friday and faces the same charges, along with having an explosive device. As of Saturday, he was being held in the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $15,300 bail.
