People in a Warner Robins neighborhood said police knocked on their doors Saturday and told them to evacuate.

Officers told them to leave due to a suspicious package found in a house nearby on Hedlund Drive. People on Todd Circle and nearby streets were told to leave the area. The neighborhood is about a half-mile north of Russell Parkway.

According to U.S. Attorney Michael Moore, FBI agents were serving a warrant at a home when they found possible explosives inside. For safety reasons people in the area were evacuated.

In a written statement late Saturday, Moore said all materials in question were removed and there's no danger to the public.

FBI officials would not say who the warrant was for.  Houston County Tax records show the owner of the home as Robert Shubert, Sr.

One neighbor told 13WMAZ's Tom George that Shubert is retired from the U.S. Air Force at Robins, and has been working at the V.A. office in Florida, coming home periodically.

He says Shubert's home seemed normal and there was never any suspicious activity.

The investigation that originally led to FBI finding possible explosives is still ongoing.
