POLICE: LMPD bomb squad called after pipe bomb found in man's home
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say the bomb squad was called after a pipe bomb was discovered inside a Louisville home.
According to an arrest report, officers executed a search warrant at the home of 34-year-old Montez L. Givens, on Marshall Walk, near the corner of S. 3rd St. and W. Southland Blvd.
While there, they allegedly found digital scales in the cabinet above the refrigerator, and a 9mm handgun.
Givens is a convicted felon, according to police.
Police say they also found a pipe bomb in the basement. The bomb squad was called to the scene to dispose of the weapon.
Givens was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a destructive device, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
But on Friday afternoon, WDRB heard from a woman, Sirron Elfalan, who claimed to be Givens' fiance, and told a much different story. She said the residence was her home, not Givens,' and that neither of them knew about the pipe bomb.
"We didn't even know it was in here until they were searching and found it," she said. "They don't have no fingerprints," she said. "They don't have nothing."
