Deputies seek ex-roommate after explosives discovered in Wesley Chapel apartment

WESLEY CHAPEL — The relationship had soured, and the roommates wanted Dylan Glaze out.

So Glaze, 19, packed up and moved out of the apartment at the Columns at Cypress Point. But authorities say he left behind a stockpile of explosives that prompted the evacuation of an apartment building Thursday night.

The roommates discovered the explosives and called law enforcement about 8:45 p.m., according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Residents waited outside for hours while a bomb squad from Hillsborough County removed the explosives from the apartment at 4448 Crabapple Drive.

The cache included improvised explosive devices, Molotov cocktails and other unknown fluids in jars, the Sheriff's Office said.

No one was injured.

Deputies are looking for Glaze for questioning about the explosives. It is unknown what he planned to do with any of the materials, Pasco sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll said.

Anyone who may know the whereabouts of Glaze may contact the Pasco Sheriff's Office at (727) 844-7711.
