PHOENIX (AP) - Maricopa County authorities say they found three pipe bombs and meth in a stolen vehicle in Florida.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Courtney Palma says deputies arrested 41-year-old Michelle L. Buck for driving without a license in the north Phoenix area on the Carefree Highway on Saturday.

Deputies discovered her car had been reported stolen by a rental company in Jacksonville.

Authorities searching the vehicle discovered meth and a meth pipe.

They say a passenger, 44-year-old Steve Aron Scott, indicated explosives were present.

Palma says a bomb squad found the pipe bombs and safely removed them.

So far, both Scott and Buck each face a charge of making a false report with law enforcement.

This story has been corrected with new information from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office that the passenger’s age is 44, not 51, and his name is Steve Aron Scott - not Charles G. Scott.
