AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Authorities have searched a Central Texas home after an explosive device was found nearby earlier in the week.

The Austin American-Statesman (http://bit.ly/1azyJaP ) reports that those searching the home Friday included local officials as well as federal agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The home is near where a bomb containing C-4, a military-grade explosive not available to the public, was detonated Wednesday by the Austin Police Department bomb squad. A resident had alerted a Hays County deputy constable to the device.

No arrests have been made, and officials did not provide any further details about the search.
