Officers were executing a search warrant at 4:30 p.m. when they found the device, which was crafted from a flashlight and explosive powder.

The search warrant was issued after the utility company told law enforcement the power to the house was turned back on illegally.

When officers went to the house, they saw drug paraphernalia through the window, said Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl.

After police came back with a search warrant, they found a homemade pipebomb in a flashlight. A bomb technician defused the object.

Arrested was 47-year-old Scott Jackson, of Brainerd, who was on probation for a previous conviction in connection with a methamphetamine lab operation found in downtown Brainerd in 2010.

Jackson was charged with four felonies, including possession of an explosive/incendiary device, a probation violation and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

“This is a good example to call (law enforcement) if something doesn’t seem right,” Dahl said. “It led to three arrests.”
