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.
