A bomb squad and ATF agents were called to a North Charleston house after materials that could be used to make explosive devices were found there Tuesday afternoon.

North Charleston police officers were called to 8009 Old London Road shortly after 1 p.m. to check a report of a possible methamphetamine lab.

Nearby homes were evacuated for a time, and ATF agents and the Charleston County Bomb Squad were called, police spokesman Spencer Pryor said.

No meth-making materials were found, but officers found items associated with the making of explosive devices, Pryor said.

A suspect was arrested on suspicion of manufacturing a destructive device, and eight others were charged with unlawful conduct towards a child. A 4-year-old was inside the home, police said. The names of those arrested were not immediately released.
