Because they have been charged as juveniles, they didn’t release their names or details of what they’re accused of doing.

Police say the teens were arrested Monday on allegations unrelated to the chemicals and devices but an officer spotted the chemicals while notifying one of their parents about the arrest. The devices were found later.

Residents of more than 30 nearby homes were evacuated until the following morning.
