WASHINGTON May 10 (Reuters) - The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed on Friday the identity of Bryce Reed of West, Texas, as the man arrested for possession of an explosive device, but it remained unclear whether there was a connection to last month's explosion at a fertilizer plant in the town.

Bureau spokeswoman Franceska Perot confirmed Reed's name in a phone interview.
