Police cleared residents to return to a northwest Las Vegas neighborhood that was partially evacuated Thursday night while local and federal authorities removed chemicals found in a house.
Residents living at the 7600 block Adornment Court were evacuated after police and federal agents found possible bomb making materials at a nearby home. The home is located in the Northwest part of the valley near Buffalo and Farm.
Police discovered the suspicious materials when they went to the home to conduct a welfare check.
Neighbors were asked to leave overnight while authorities removed the chemicals, which officials have not identified. FBI Agent David Staretz describes them as commercially available chemicals, and says they were destroyed in the desert.
