WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) -- Police say they found unassembled components of a pipe bomb in an apartment in the northwest Denver suburb of Westminster.

Authorities tell the Denver Post bomb squad members discovered the components Friday.

Police said via Twitter they are questioning a man and that officers are using a robot to inspect a car he was driving. A police spokesman didn't immediately return a call.

Authorities evacuated at least four apartment buildings and later reopened some of them. At least one business was also evacuated.

Meanwhile, Denver police say a suspicious package discovered near Colorado's main judicial building Friday was inspected and found to be harmless.

The building, which includes the state Supreme Court, was locked down for about an hour and a busy street was closed. Both have been reopened.

ANOTHER PACKAGE FOUND DOWNTOWN

DENVER (AP) -- Denver police say a suspicious package found near Colorado's main judicial building was not a bomb, and a busy downtown street has been reopened.

The judicial building, which includes the state Supreme Court, was locked down for about an hour on Friday but has also reopened.

Meanwhile, in the northwest Denver suburb of Westminster, a bomb squad was called after someone reported a possible explosive device at an apartment complex. Police say four buildings at the Cobblestone Village apartments and one nearby business were evacuated.

The evacuation was later lifted at one of the four apartment buildings.

Police say they are questioning a man about the object and are not looking for anyone else.
