ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a man attempted a crime of the highest level - setting off explosives at the Sandia Crest.

KOB-TV in Albuquerque reports (https://goo.gl/oQaJm1) that Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office says homemade explosives were found recently near Albuquerque broadcast towers. Officials say at least one Molotov cocktail was detonated and caused minor damage, but the fire did not spread.

Photos of the crime scene show the accelerant and jumper cables.

Investigators say a camera on the crest captured a man acting suspiciously in the area and he left in a white SUV.

No arrests have been made.

The Sandia Crest has an elevation of 10,000 feet.
