Possible explosive found

KINGMAN - What could be a homemade explosive was found by a person cleaning up after a previous tenant over the weekend.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office said an individual was cleaning out a garage in the 4000 block of Bond Street around 3 p.m. Sunday when they found what looked to be like an explosive of some sort.

Sheriff's Spokeswoman Trish Carter described the device as an aluminum C02 cartridge with silicone holding a wick in place. The device was found inside a bucket.

The Kingman Police Department bomb squad responded to the scene and took possession of the device for further testing.
