Motorist stopped on I-10 admits having pipe bomb
A traffic stop turned into a bomb scare Tuesday after a male driver of a vehicle traveling eastbound on Interstate 10 between Cortarto and Ina roads admitted to having a pipe bomb stowed in the vehicle, authorities said.
One lane of eastbound traffic has been closed and bomb squads from both Green Valley and Casa Grande have been called onto the scene.
Pending further investigation of this incident, both west and eastbound lanes of traffic on I-10 could be closed.
The driver was arrested and a female passenger has become an investigative lead into the incident.
