CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Clovis police say they found a suspicious device while searching the room of a teenager who showed signs of being intoxicated.

Police spokesman Roman Romero says the incident began around 1 a.m. Saturday when officers responded to a home where a 17-year-old was yelling and screaming.

Romero says the teen appeared under the influence of a substance and allegedly bit one of the officers.

The teen was taken to a hospital for suspected intoxication and has since been released to his parents.

Romero says officers were granted permission to search the teen’s room and found “suspicious cylinders.”

The cylinders were taken by the department’s explosive ordnance disposal unit for further examination.

Police also recovered a firearm and drug paraphernalia.

Romero says the investigation remains ongoing.
