Tucson Police have made an arrest in connection with an incident Tuesday that forced road closures and the evacuation of a hotel on the southwest side.

The charges stem from an incident at the Silverbell Inn, 720 W. Silverlake Road, in which suspicious objects were discovered a little before 9:30 a.m.

The Tucson Police Bomb Squad determined the objects were improvised explosive devices and removed them for further investigation and to be rendered safe.
