LACEY, Wash. - After an hours-long police standoff, investigators found stolen property and explosives inside of a home near Lacey on Friday.

 

The incident happened around 10 a.m. when police spotted a stolen rental car inside an open garage at the home.

 

According to detectives, the men who live inside of the house are felons and likely armed.

 

After officers ordered the residents to exit the house and no one came out, a SWAT team fired tear gas inside of the home.

 

Police entered the home when it was clear, but no one was inside.

 

After detectives searched the house, they found two pipe bombs and backed away. They waited for a bomb squad to make sure it was safe to go back inside.

 

Detectives found a stolen Mustang from SeaTac Airport and a shed full of stolen car parts in the garage. Inside of the home, they also found guns, stolen property and heroin.

 

KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Alison Grande spoke with a neighbor, Otto Parsons, who watched the hours-long standoff and waited.

 

“I want it to end. I have to get some sleep. I work nights,” said Parsons.

 

Police are still looking for the men and told KIRO 7 they are likely to come back to the home.
