The Elk River Police Department received a call about two teens switching license plates with a car in Elk River.

Officers tried to stop the vehicle but were led on a short chase. Police were finally able to stop the vehicle.

They searched it and found a loaded handgun. The two teens admitted to being involved in additional crimes which led to a search of both of their homes.

In one of the homes deputies found a homemade bomb. The Minneapolis Police Department Bomb Squad was called in to disable the device.

The two teens are being held in the Sherburne County Jail awaiting charges.
