On October 2nd, 2012 at 1:20 a.m., the Murrieta Police Department received a 911 transfer call from the California Highway Patrol.  The caller stated she was in fear for her safety as her live in boyfriend was threatening to burn their home down.  The address was narrowed down to the 23800 block of Corinth Drive in the City of Murrieta.  Murrieta Officers arrived on scene, located the residence in question and entered looking for the caller or anyone else that may be injured inside the home.  The residence was not occupied, however, officers did notice several explosive devices, narcotics and a distinct smell of gasoline.  Officers left the residence and requested the assistance of the Murrieta Police Department Detective Bureau, as well as the Riverside Sheriff's Office Explosive Device Team.  While officers held a containment on the location, the suspect, Mr. Kenneth Haley (age 31), drove through the area.  He was stopped by patrol officers and arrested pending the results of a search warrant.  A search warrant for the residence was obtained by Detectives at 8:30 a.m.  A search of the residence and further investigation resulted in Mr. Haley being arrested for the listed charges:

11350 H&S - Possession of Cocaine
18715(A)(3) PC - Possession of Destructive Device
18710A PC - Possession of Destructive Device
496 PC - Possession of Stolen Property (US Military Property)
664 / 451 PC - Attempt Arson

All explosive and dangerous devices were removed from the location by the RSO bomb team and the residence was rendered safe before officers cleared from the scene.  This case is being handled by Murrieta Police Detective Vic Carrillo.  Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call Det. Carrillo at 461-6311.  Anonymous tips can be called into We-Tip at 1-800-78-CRIME.
