Man arrested after explosives found

GERMANTOWN, Wis. (AP) -- A man was arrested after police say they found a large amount of explosives in a home in the Milwaukee suburb of Germantown.

Police maintained a perimeter around the home overnight Tuesday until a bomb squad could begin its work removing the explosives in the light of day. Authorities arrested a 33-year-old man at the home and evacuated his grandmother as well as neighbors in a 1-block radius.

WISN-TV reports neighbors were allowed to return to their homes once police determined the explosives were stable.
