The Pueblo Metro Bomb Unit discovered a large suspected explosive in a home in the 300 block of Karval in Pueblo West this morning.
The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office was searching the home, when the device was found in the garage.
Bomb techs removed the item and are currently searching the home for more devices.
Five homes are evacuated and Liberty Point Elementary School remains on secure perimeter.
When bomb techs finish the scan of the home, Sheriff's Deputies will continue the search. The Sheriff's Office told News 5 they hope to be able to allow residents back home by the time students are released from school.
The suspect was arrested on outstanding warrants last night. His mother owns the home and allowed deputies in the home.
