Bombs found in car; home being evacuated

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating two explosive devices deputies found in a car near Carencro.

According to Captain Kip Judice, deputies discovered the bombs during a traffic stop on Bajat Road. Judice says six homes in the area have been evacuated.

Three streets in the area--Bajat Road, Joli Road, and Briarfield Drive--have been closed while officials conduct their investigation. Deputies say they are working to set up a staging area for students on school buses and others who cannot return home because of the roadblocks.

HAZMAT crews and emergency personnel are en route to the scene.
