SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Authorities said an employee at an auto body repair shop in a Phoenix suburb has been arrested after an explosive device was found at his workstation.

Scottsdale police said the state Department of Public Safety bomb squad removed the small device from a Service King Collision Repair Center in north Scottsdale on Friday. There were no injuries and the business reopened before noon.

Authorities arrested the employee, 31-year Michael Mclain, as he arrived for work. He’s facing drug charges as well as a count of possession/manufacturing of a prohibited weapon. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Authorities said the worker built the device but told detectives he did not have plans to harm anyone with it.

Scottsdale police said the investigation is ongoing.
