Items recovered included an improvised explosive device, narcotics, weapons and an illegally possessed venomous reptile during a series of search warrants, according to a statement by Dunn County Sheriff Clay Coker. The searches took place at one location just west of Killdeer and two locations east of Killdeer. Livestock bearing illegal and/or altered brands were also located in the searches.
