CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have found explosive devices in a home where a man’s body was found.

A statement from police said the body of 65-year-old Alva Richard Brewer was found in the house on the city’s south side after a call to police on Monday.

Authorities said while detectives searched the home, they found homemade explosive devices. Nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution.

A bomb squad went to the scene, rendered the devices safe and took them to a secure location. Police went back to the home on Tuesday and found more explosive devices, and the bomb squad returned to the home as well and neutralized the devices.
