Explosive device found outside apartment building

A bomb squad was called to a central Kentucky apartment building early Monday morning, after police found an explosive device.

Police did make one arrest, after arriving at the Georgetown Terrace Apartments off Champion Way in Georgetown.

Georgetown Police were originally called to the apartment complex around 4 a.m. Monday for a report of suspicious activity.

When they arrived, police say they found two men sitting in a car.

Police say after a quick search of the car, they found drugs and an explosive device.

The Lexington Police Bomb Squad was called in to defuse the device, which they did successfully.

Police arrested 20-year-old Craig D. Lynch and charged him with drug possession and two counts of wanton endangerment. The whole situation left people living nearby shaken.

"It's sad, it really is, but I'm thankful that it's over and no damage was done," Louise Pitts, who lives nearby, said.

Police say Lynch does not live at the apartment complex. The man police say was with him was also taken into custody.
