Authorities say law officers in Arizona have intercepted an explosive device that was earmarked for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said late Thursday night that the device was contained in a package addressed to the sheriff at his downtown Phoenix office.

The sheriff's office says Flagstaff, Ariz., police reported that the package appeared suspicious so it was x-rayed and the device detected.

A bomb squad team neutralized the explosive.

A press release from the sheriff's office says authorities in Flagstaff are pursuing leads and three Maricopa deputies were being dispatched to Flagstaff to assist. Flagstaff is about 140 miles north of Phoenix.

No other details were immediately released.
