New Port Richey: Man arrested days after bomb squad searched home

NEW PORT RICHEY — Police have arrested a 24-year-old man less than a week after the bomb squad searched his house and detonated a possible "destructive device."

New Port Richey Police originally went to the home at 5820 Pine St. on Saturday afternoon to serve a warrant on Harlin Miller Jr., who was wanted for a federal charge of possession of an unregistered firearm. Detectives suspected there might be weapons and an explosive device at the home, however, so they evacuated the area and brought in the bomb squad.

The bomb squad safely retrieved the device and detonated it. There was no sign that day of Miller.

Police returned Thursday morning after receiving another tip that Miller had returned to the home. He was arrested without incident and will be transferred to federal custody, the New Port Richey Police Department said.
