Jared E. Coburn, 37, was arrested on Tuesday in Lake Helen, Florida, after police responded to an anonymous tip about a bomb 'under the bed' in the home he shared with his cousin and the cousin's daughter.

TATP - Maims - Reason - Islamic - Mother

On Tuesday afternoon, police acting on a tip responded to the home where Coburn rents a room from his cousin, a single-story stucco home in the community 30 miles northeast of Orlando.
