HOUSTON, Tx- Several homemade explosives were found in a home after police arrested two suspects during a child pornography investigation.

Wednesday morning, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office High Tech Crimes Unit and High Risk Operations Unit served a search warrant at a northwest Houston home in the 17500 block of Haywood Oaks Drive. When deputies entered the home, one suspect shot at the deputies. No one was injured and both suspects were taken into custody without further incident.

While deputies continued their search through the home they discovered “several homemade explosive devices.” The HCSO Bomb Squad responded and was able to safely remove all the devices.

According to court documents, one of the suspects, identified as Joshua Bishnow, was caught with child porn on his cell phone when he took his phone to a shop for repairs in June. In the document, an employee stated he saw a picture of a small girl, under the age of 10, with a male body part next to her face. The police were immediately contacted.

At this time there are no details on what the explosives were being used for.
