  • BATHTUB ROW STANDOFF ENDS WITHOUT INCIDENT

    Los Alamos Police have successfully concluded negotiations with a local man who had barricaded himself inside a residence at 1350 Bathtub Row.

    Officers staked out the home and apprehended Richard Morse when he exited to dispose of his trash at a receptacle in his front yard at about noon today.

    Morse, 75, is a former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist who worked on the W-76 thermonuclear warhead in the 1970s and 1980s. He has been a longtime critic of the weapon saying a design flaw involving a "too thin casing," made it unstable.
