ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — Police are looking for the person who left an explosive device in St. Cloud that caused an evacuation.

Authorities said Monday the device was an explosive made from a CO2 cartridge, or “cricket bomb” and had a fuse. Police temporarily evacuated the area after the device was found Saturday. No one was hurt.

The Crow Wing County bomb squad safely detonated the device.
