    PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona's Sheriff Joe Arpaio says the mailing of an explosive device addressed to him reflects the nature of his business and follows many threats he's received over the years.

    Arpaio has called himself the "toughest sheriff in America" and is known for his strict treatment of jail inmates and cracking down on illegal immigrants.

    His office says a mailed package intercepted in northern Arizona Thursday contained an explosive device.

    A federal official won't confirm a device was found, but Arpaio's office says it was detected when the package was X-rayed. A bomb squad team neutralized the explosive.

    Postal Inspector Patricia Armstrong says a "very astute" carrier emptying a collection box in the Flagstaff area thought something about package's outside looked wrong.

    Armstrong says investigators are examining the package's contents.
