No one was scheduled to be there, however there was a car parked outside the property. The officers went inside to find 24 year old Johnathan Peterson, a homeless man. 

The officers were searching the property, while going through the drawers they found white PVC pipe wrapped in tape with a fuse, appearing to be a pipe bomb.

The squad was able to disassemble the device. However, they felt that it was an improvised exposive device.  Peterson was taken in on burglary chargers.
