EL PASO, Texas (AP) - El Paso police used a bomb squad to investigate the home of a high school teacher arrested on charges he had an improper relationship with a student.
The El Paso Times (http://bit.ly/11MNtnX ) reports 27-year-old Bobby J. French was arrested Friday by El Paso Independent School District police. French was a business teacher at Andress High School.
Homeland Security agents and El Paso school police arrived to serve a search warrant and found "suspicious" objects in French's home. They called in a bomb squad and evacuated neighboring homes.
El Paso police department spokesman Sgt. Chris Mears says the objects were not "explosive in nature," but did not say what devices aroused suspicion.
French has been charged with having an inappropriate relationship with a student. Bond is set at $100,000.
