David Klein, 30, and Allison Ober, 27, were taken into custody on Friday.

A few days later, investigators returned to the apartment and found what the Pitcairn Police chief described as “material commonly used for explosive devices.”
Officers called the ATF, which told them to call the Allegheny County Bomb Squad. Homes within 300 feet of the apartment complex were then evacuated for much of the day as investigators searched the apartment and cleared the scene.
The evacuation lasted nearly 10 hours.
