Police in Connecticut say they have arrested a man after stopping a car full of explosives in a New Haven residential neighborhood. Authorities have not released the man's name. Officers say they stopped the car Tuesday night and found pipe bombs, rifles and a propane tank. It wasn't clear if the man had plans to use the explosives.

Authorities closed off a four-block area, but didn't order an evacuation. A bomb squad detonated the explosives without incident. There were no reports of any injuries.
