DAWES CO., Neb -- A Chadron man is in trouble after authorities found materials to make explosives inside his home.

Dawes County Court records show that Chadron police executed a search warrant on Tues., Oct 17 at the residence of Curtis Beseke at 362 Main St.

Inside the home, authorities found 17 pressure cookers, over 80 pounds of different chemicals and multiple electronics.

Concerns came to light when a contact of Beseke revealed that Beseke wanted him to buy materials to make explosives because there is a limit to how much he could buy each month.

Court documents said that Beseke allegedly threatened to blow up a NAPA store.
