Police officers found what appeared to be a bomb during a vehicle stop Monday in central Merced. A nearby school was locked down, three people ultimately were arrested and the device was detonated by officers.

The incident began when a pickup in which a suspected warrant absconder was riding was stopped on Glen Avenue. Officers noticed what appeared to be a pipe bomb in the truck's glove compartment and the Merced Police Bomb Squad was called in to investigate.
