Two people were arrested after two homemade bombs exploded in the area of an apartment complex on the northeast side of the Springs.

Authorities say a soda bottle filled with a chemical substance exploded in a mailbox Monday morning at a house next door to the Carefree Village Apartments on Pacer Lane, near Carefree and Oro Blanco. A maintenance man later found a second bottle at the complex by a utility box, which also exploded.

Two other soda bottles, which did not explode, were found in a gutter at the complex.

24-year-old Caleb Long and 21-year-old Tyler Fraser face felony charges of possession of an explosive device. They've also been charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Oro Blanco at Carefree was shut down Monday morning while police and a HAZMAT team investigated.
