Explosive situation

Danville police detained a 35-year-old man from Oakland at a home on Montego Drive in Danville on Monday on suspicion of possessing explosives, said Danville Sgt. Troy Craig.

The Oakland Police Department was trying to locate Mark Mandel for allegedly having explosives and on other related charges, and officers contacted Danville police to find him. After receiving the call and conducting an investigation, Danville police found and detained Mandel at his parents' home on Montego Drive until the Oakland police arrived.

"We assisted Oakland Police Department in apprehending a dangerous subject," Craig said. "We were glad to help."
