MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A man suspected of making a homemade explosive device in Pukwana is in custody in Mitchell.

The Daily Republic reports (https://bit.ly/2dAzJZ4 ) that police this week arrested 42-year-old Donald Pickner following a foot chase.

Authorities in Brule County had been seeking Pickner after the sheriff’s office and Chamberlain Police Department said they discovered a homemade explosive device in Pickner’s Pukwana home on Sept. 7. They detonated the device with the help of the state Division of Criminal Investigation.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Pickner has an attorney representing him.
