EDMOND, Oklahoma -

Bob Mills SkyNews 9 HD and Jim Gardner were in the air Wednesday as the bomb squad responded to a possible explosive device which they detonated near the Lake Overholser, all this while bomb techs from around the world were also in town training to find bombs under water.

The murky choppy water here at Lake Arcadia makes for some treacherous conditions. That is why the Lake is closed to the public, but it has become the perfect training ground for bomb techs all over the world.

Rockie Yardley is one of two instructors in the world that can teach this kind of bomb recovery. He is a crime scene investigator and bomb disposal technician at the Edmond PD. He is also the chief instructor and creator of this one of a kind class.

As it turns out this kind of training can prove to be very important in solving certain crimes, even some high profile ones.

But the training is not easy. The gear is heavy. The water is dirty, and the current is fierce. It's definitely no fun day at the lake. That's why teamwork, intuition, and training are key. And these officers say this training will definitely help them and other members on the bomb squad.

The bomb disposal techs will be back out here Thursday doing more training. There are only two instructors in the world who can teach this kind of training, and both of them are right here in Edmond, Okla.
