    A reported suicide turned into a bomb scare in Montgomery County late Sunday night after responding officers found three pipe bombs and explosive materials inside a Gaithersburg apartment.

    Before midnight, police were called about a suicide at an apartment in 400 block of Sunnybrook Terrace. Once inside, officers noticed several suspicious items and called the bomb squad.

    The apartment building was evacuated as the pipe bombs were removed. The items were taken to a field at the Montgomery County Agricultural Park where a robot was used to help safely disrupt the devices.

    Officials have not released the name of the man found dead in the apartment. It is unclear if he is the one who made the pipe bombs.
