WEIRTON, W.Va. (AP) — Police are investigating explosive devices that were found outside the Weirton Municipal Building.

Police Chief Bruce Marshall says a city police officer noticed one of the devices around 11 p.m. Monday night. Police examined the device and searched the grounds. Two other devices were found outside the building and one was found between two police cruisers.

Marshall said Wednesday that the devices were bottles containing chemicals. He declined to provide details, saying the investigation is ongoing.

The police department defused the devices. Marshall says they will be turned over to the FBI for testing.
