The Associated Press - May 25, 2017 9:25 am

SAPULPA, Okla. (AP) – Police have arrested a father and son after pipe bombs were allegedly found in a car outside a courthouse in a city southwest of Tulsa.
KOTV-TV reports the men, identified as Berry and Christopher Nichols, were booked into Creek County Jail early Wednesday on complaints related to making and possessing bombs, as well as conspiracy and burglary.
Police discovered the materials after a woman reported finding pipe bombs in her car Tuesday outside the Creek County courthouse in Sapulpa.
A police affidavit alleges both men admitted being involved. Police say one man who’d been charged with targeting the woman in the past said they were trying to scare her.
Creek County Jail officials tell The Associated Press the men don’t have attorneys listed in jail records. Neither man had a working publicly listed phone number.
