A 54-year-old Woodlawn man was arrested by Jefferson County sheriff's deputies after a search of his home Wednesday allegedly turned up explosive devices, guns and ammunition. Police served a search warrant at the residence of Dennis Duncan at 19,662 Pisque Lane in Woodlawn. During the search, police seized two homemade pipe bombs, other explosive related materials, numerous shotguns, rifles, handguns and a large quantity of ammunition.

Duncan was arrested on charges of possession of an explosive incendiary device, unlawful use of weapons and disorderly conduct. He is currently in the Jefferson County Jail awaiting bond.

Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Illinois Secretary of State Police Bomb Squad and the Illinois State Police Crime Scene Services all responded to the residence to assist with the investigation.

----------------
The local newspaper had a longer writeup about it today, no online copy available. It went on about his large cache of weapons and ammunition of course. Just curious if anyone knows any more details on this and why his home was home was searched with. The local paper said it was due to an anonymous tip, but didn't expound on the details of what the tip was about. His foid was just revoked last thursday it also said, so something happened very suddenly it seems.

The implication seems to be innapropriate discharge (whatever that means over there...skeet shooting? Blasting the neighbor's garbage cans?) followed by search & siezure.

Whenever I hear about pipe bombs, I can't help but wonder if it's a BS "constructive possession" thing based on owning reloading supplies, plumbing, and a match.

I would believe the unlawful use of weapons could just be from his posession of firearms after his foid card was revoked.

Illinois Secretary of State Police Bomb Squad

Why does the SoS need a police department, much less a bomb squad?

Why, exactly, are pipe bombs "bad" again? I forgot.

Ohhh, that's right--Big Brother says they're bad, and that we're not to be trusted with them. Big Brother approves the first-class citizens' ownership of all sorts of explosives, however, so don't worry: we're safe!

Why, exactly, are guns "bad" again? Ohhh...

Why do they print his home address? That seems pretty low. Why dont they arrest a pedophile and list his home address?

The Secretary of State has a police force with armed police. My friend did an internship with them. It seems like in IL every government agency has some sort of police department. It is pretty redundant.

God I cant wait to get out of here.

The Secretary of State Police handle the security at the capitol and other state buildings in Springfield and Chicago. They are also charged with regulating automobile titles, junkyards, car dealerships etc.

Illinois is strange. No CCW, but over 100 different state agencies are allowed to carry. (Credit to ISP2065)
