TOOELE — Tooele City Police arrested four people after discovering drugs and materials to build explosives in a Tooele home.

Officers responded to a home on 319 E. 600 North to serve an arrest warrant on a woman Tuesday.

When officers arrived they located Jannike Avery, 24, Hayden Wright, 19, Marcello Aragon, 21 and Davin Roberts, 42, all with outstanding warrants.

Evidence of drug use in the home prompted a search warrant for drugs, according to a press release from Tooele City Police.

Gunpowder and suspicious devices were found in the basement of the home during the officers’ search for drugs.

Officers were concerned that the home owner may be building explosive devices, the press release stated.

The Salt Lake County Unified Bomb Squad as well as federal agents responded to evaluate the materials found.
