Explosive found in Sussex apartment
The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department has named Anthony Haessly as the man taken into custody Oct. 24 after two improvised explosive devices were found in an apartment on Champeny Court in the Village of Sussex.
According to a release from the department, he was taken into custody on a probation violation. He currently remains in the custody of the Waukesha County Jail.
The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department Bomb Squad removed two improvised explosive devices from the apartment last Thursday, according to the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff's Department Inspector Eric Severson told the Sussex Sun on Oct. 23 that late Wednesday evening, the department obtained information that a resident might be building suspicious devices. The department issued a search warrant and executed that warrant Thursday afternoon. According to Severson, the Sheriff's Department took the man into custody. No one was injured.
Both devices were destroyed in a controlled fashion by the Milwaukee Bomb Squad, which was on scene, along with the Sheriff's Department, Sussex Fire Department and the Federal Bureau of Firearms and Tobacco.
Severson stated that neighboring residents were informed of the incident and asked to evacuate the area. Residents outside of the immediate proximity were notified door-to-door of the situation. Once the area was determined to be safe, those residents were notified they could return to their homes.
The incident remains under investigation by the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
