Bail set for two men charged after explosion
Two men charged with causing an explosion in the garage of a Providence home last week now have the option of posting bail.

Jeffrey Toombs, 21, was in the courtroom Monday, while 22-year-old Joshua Keith — who was arrested Friday after his release from the hospital — made his appearance by video.

Both were charged in 1st District Court with illegal possession of explosives or incendiary devices and reckless endangerment after a homemade blasting cap detonated in Keith’s hand last week.

Both have been held without bail until Monday’s court appearance, and according to court documents, investigators believed there was more explosive material available at a separate location, and until that material was properly secured, Toombs and Keith were a danger to the public.

Bail was set at $7,000 for Toombs and $10,000 for Keith.

17 more detained over China blast that killed 78
Police have detained 17 more suspects connected to a chemical blast in eastern China last month which killed 78 and left hundreds injured, local authorities said Monday.

The explosion in eastern Jiangsu province was one of the worst industrial accidents in the country in recent years and led to the closure of the plant.

Police have taken "criminal coercive measures" against the 17 suspects, said the Yancheng city government on its official Twitter-like Weibo account, bringing the number people rounded up over the blast to 26.

The latest group includes individuals from an unnamed third-party organisation, who are accused of falsifying project evaluations, and Jiangsu Tianjiayi Chemical company, whose plant was involved in the blast.

The March 21 explosion razed an industrial park and blew out the windows of surrounding homes.

Texas chemical plant employee charged in explosion in aftermath of Hurricane Harvey
DALLAS — Another senior employee at a chemical company is facing criminal charges connected to a 2017 explosion at a Houston-area plant following Hurricane Harvey.

Michael Keough, vice president of logistics for Arkema Inc.'s North American subsidiary, was indicted on felony assault charges tied to his actions ahead of a chemical fire and explosion at the company's Crosby facility, the Harris County District Attorney's office announced Wednesday. The company was also charged.

Keough falsely told officials that Arkema was monitoring potentially explosive chemical tanks in real time when the company had insufficient data to give early warning, according to District Attorney Kim Ogg. These "misrepresentations" led two sheriff's deputies to drive directly into a toxic cloud, which then spread to exposing others, she said.

An attorney for Keough, Dan Cogdell, called the indictment "absurd" and "beyond rational thought."

Three detained over China chemical blast that killed 78
Police have detained three suspects linked to a chemical plant blast in China, which killed 78 people and left hundreds injured, local officials said Wednesday.

The explosion last month in Yancheng city, in eastern Jiangsu province, was one of the worst industrial accidents in the country in recent years.

Three employees from Jiangsu Tianjiayi Chemical, whose facility was involved in the blast, had "significant responsibility" for the accident, according to a statement on the Yancheng government's official Twitter-like Weibo account.

Officials said the suspects have been subjected to "criminal coercive measures" -- a vague term which indicates detention, arrest or being put under house arrest temporarily until police complete their investigations, according to an explanation on the Chinese parliament's website.

Yancheng police declined to offer details on the case when contacted by AFP.

The blast razed an industrial park and blew out the windows of surrounding homes.

The company, with 195 employees, was established in 2007 and mainly produces raw chemical materials including anisole, a highly flammable compound.

Meth lab shuts down Canberra street as 39-year-old man arrested, expected to be charged later today
A 39-year-old man has been arrested and is expected to be charged later today with possessing and manufacturing illicit substances, after ACT police raided an alleged clandestine drug lab at a property in Canberra's south.

Officers executed a search warrant at the home on Wilkins Street in Mawson about 6:30am today, where they said they found a "clandestine laboratory" manufacturing methamphetamine.

The street was closed off after officers also discovered "dangerous items" — separate to the alleged drug lab — and called in ACT Fire and Rescue crews to help secure the site.

Detective Superintendent Scott Moller said the bomb squad had eliminated any danger to the public, but the way those items were sitting and the "wiring attached to them" had raised red flags.
