STAFFORD, Va. (AP) - A search is under way for a man that authorities say is suspected in explosions at three homes in central Virginia targeted at two local law enforcement officers and an ex-girlfriend.

The Stafford County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that 25-year-old Laurence Alan Stewart II is wanted on charges including attempted capital murder of a law enforcement officer, manufacture or possession of a weapon of terror, and throwing a missile into an occupied dwelling.

Stewart is considered armed and dangerous. His whereabouts are unknown.

No one was injured early Tuesday from the homemade explosive devices placed at the homes in Stafford County and Fredericksburg.
