MONROE, OH (FOX19) -

Monroe Police have arrested four teenagers for allegedly placing several bombs in a Monroe neighborhood Tuesday.

Monroe Police responded to the 400 block of Hickory Street at around 6:30 a.m. for a report of shots fired. When they arrived, officers found several suspicious looking items in the street. Police then contacted the Butler County bomb squad, who identified them as "Chemical Reaction bombs," or "Drano Bombs," and detonated them.

On Wednesday, Monroe Police arrested Steven Bolin, 19, Michael Akers, 18, Klair Garett, 19, and Brian Carr, 19, all of Middletown, in connection with the bombs. They have been charged with possessing criminal tools, inducing panic, and unlawful possession of dangerous ordnance. 

A fourth person is reportedly being questioned and possible charges are pending.

According to police, there were no plans to build or use other devices and it was a one-time event.
