Andrew Adams, KSL NewsradioPolice make a shocking find in a car on Redwood Road in Salt Lake City.
The officer stopped the driver of the car because of a loud muffler. Police found home-made shrapnel, explosive devices made from CO2 cartridges, a fuse, nails and a propane tank.
Salt Lake City Detective Jared Wihongi says, "Regardless of what the intent of this individual was with these materials, anytime you create explosive devices, it can cause a risk to yourself and other members of the public that may be around you."
