Two people were arrested early Tuesday morning in connection with a chemical bomb that detonated in the backyard of a Longview residence.

According to police reports, 20-year-old Celeste Marie Tebow, of Longview and 30-year-old Benjamin Enloe Hilton, of Gladewater were arrested at about 2 a.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of East Hawkins Parkway.

Police were dispatched to the 1900 block of Wimberly Street at about 11:45 p.m. Monday night after the victim reported that a chemical bomb went off in the backyard of her home.

Police found the remnants of two homemade bombs in the backyard. The devices "appeared to be constructed of a plastic bottle, tin foil and an unknown liquid."

The victim told police she suspected that it was Hilton who detonated the bomb because of an "ongoing feud."
