Lancer Dale Holloway, a 41-year-old man from Houston, was arrested last Friday morning after Granbury Police officers discovered three improvised explosive devices in the vehicle he had been driving, according to GPD Lt. Russell Grizzard. Holloway was booked into the Hood County Jail, where he remained as of Monday morning, facing bonds totaling $72,000 on multiple counts, including unauthorized use of a vehicle, officials stated.
Grizzard’s news release states that GPD officers “encountered a vehicle which was reported to have been stolen. The two occupants were detained in the parking lot at Race Trac on South Morgan Street, and the vehicle was subsequently searched. Officers found three improvised explosive devices in the car during the search.
“Members of the Fort Worth Police Department Bomb Squad, Fort Worth Fire Department Bomb Squad, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents responded to assist. After the initial investigation, a Glen Rose woman who was a passenger was released with no charges. 41 year old Lancer Holloway of Houston was ultimately arrested for three counts of Possession of Prohibited Weapon for the explosive devices, and Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle.”
Grizzard also noted that the prohibited weapon charges qualify as third-degree felony counts, and unauthorized use of a vehicle is a state jail felony offense. Holloway was also booked on possession of a controlled substance, which ranks as a third-degree felony.
The time the Sept. 17 incident was called in was 8:42 a.m.
