TULSA - A man with no previous history of violence planned to blow up a methadone clinic in Miami, Oklahoma, police say, but the plot came to light after he also threatened to blow up his girlfriend, who called 911.
Vinita Police Chief Bobby Floyd tells KRMG Jason Riseman had built a number of pipe bombs using homemade gunpowder, PVC pipes, and shotgun shells.
Riseman's girlfriend initially called 911 during an argument with him as they drove on I-44, Floyd says.
When OHP pulled over the vehicle, she told them about Riseman's threats to kill her and her daughter with a bomb, and his plans to bomb a methadone clinic in Miami.
He was reportedly angry at having to drive to the clinic daily for methadone.
Floyd says he didn't have to go far to find Riseman, who lives just across the street from him and a couple houses down.
That's where they found the improvised explosive devices, along with evidence of drug activity.
Riseman has denied he planned to blow up the clinic.
He has no prior felony record.
