DREXEL, Mo. (AP) - Authorities in western Missouri have arrested a man who they say had a loaded weapon and a homemade explosive device in his car, which was parked outside a bank.

Cass County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the bank in Drexel early Saturday by bank employees who reported a suspicious person in a car parked behind the bank. Deputies found a loaded handgun and handmade explosive device in the vehicle.

The area around the bank was evacuated and the Lee’s Summit Bomb Squad responded and disarmed the device.
