Police evacuate Dorian St. homes again to remove explosives

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) -- A handful of homes on Dorian Street are being evacuated once again Thursday so officials can remove explosive materials.

Boise PD said bomb squad and haz mat crews are back at the Dorian Street home where officials found about 100 pounds worth of explosive materials Wednesday. The materials were found late in the evening and police decided to hold off on removing them until the afternoon

"It's good to know they're doing their jobs and they all did it well so can't complain, it's nice to be able to feel protected even though you're in a close proximity to a hundred pounds of explosives," said Rudy Ashenbrener, who was evacuated.

Authorities say officers were at the home investigating a kidnapping report related to a family dispute. While investigating, officers say that 31-year-old Joshua Finch had stashed "highly explosive material" in the home's crawl space.

Police said Wednesday night that they had found more than 100 pounds of product in various stages of bomb making.

Finch made his first court appearance on the kidnapping charge Thursday afternoon. Additional charges are pending.
