(RIRIE, ID) – A pipe bomb was found at a home near Ririe Monday afternoon.  The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office says the girlfriend of Shawn Heath arrived at his home to pick up some belongings and found a pipe bomb in his bedroom, along with other bomb-making materials. Heath was already in jail on a domestic battery charge stemming from an altercation over the weekend. A bomb squad later blew up the device.   At this point, no additional charges will be filed against Heath who claims he was using the bombs to clear out beaver dams close to his home.   Prosecutors did not rule out future charges however including federal charges.
