BRANSON — Branson officials said two suspicious devices, one confirmed to be a bomb, have been discovered near the Branson Landing.

Branson city spokesman Jerry Adams said a pipe bomb was found inside a backpack near an ATM in the center of the Landing, which is the tourist town's upscale shopping area. That bomb was disarmed.

A second suspicious device was later found inside a car in a parking garage at the Landing. Adams said those explosives turned out to be fireworks.

A 35-year-old male from Florida and a 34-year-old female from Missouri were arrested after the bomb was found. They have not been charged.

No injuries have been reported.
