Barksdale airmen arrested for allegedly making his own bombs

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA)- A Barksdale airmen is in jail tonight for allegedly making his own bombs. He was arrested Sunday morning by Bossier City police.

That's when police were called out to Malachi Mize's home located just off base.

Once inside his home Bossier City investigators say they found several items that appeared to be bomb making materials.

He was charged with manufacture and possession of a bomb.

We did some digging today, and found on his facebook page, under interests "things that go boom".

A police report has not been made available, so we don't know the exact circumstances as to why they were called out there, and why he had the materials in the first place.

But once those details become available to us we'll pass it on to you.
