PHOENIX - Two men are in custody after authorities reported finding guns and explosive devices in their vehicle.
Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say 30-year-old Michael James Doyle and 26-year-old Christopher G. Dewey are being held on suspicion of misconduct with explosives, misconduct with a weapon and use of body armor during commission of a felony.
A DPS officer stopped the vehicle after seeing it weaving in traffic and nearly hit a retaining wall near U.S. 60 and 91st Avenue around 9 p.m. on Aug. 27.
Authorities say Doyle was wearing a bulletproof vest inside the car and had a pipe bomb with a red fuse in his pants.
Officers searched the car and found a loaded AK-47, seven improvised explosive devices, a book on making IEDs, nearly 160 rounds of ammunition, a machete and body armor.
