Former dentist arrested for possession of explosives, firearms after violating protection order

Lincoln Police arrested 46-year-old Jason Rohrs on Thursday after it was reported he had violated a protection order against him.

When police contacted him, they found meth in his home, and then obtained a search warrant. 

The search warrant lead them to find three explosive devices that contained 182 times the legal amount of explosive powder. As well as three handguns, five long guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition. 

In addition, investigators found 1.3 grams of meth and paraphernalia. 

Police said Rohrs isn’t allowed to have weapons because he had prior convictions for violating a protection order. 

He was arrested for the protection order violation; subsequent offense, possession of three explosive devices, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a controlled substance. 

Police also said Rohrs used to be a dentist in Louisville, Nebraska. The new owners of the practice told Channel 8 he hasn’t worked there for the past several months.
