VIDEO: Bomb Squad Detonates Suspicious Item

Shortly after 3pm today a resident in the 1000 block of East Palm Drive reported a suspicious item to Glendora PD.

Upon initial inspection, it appeared to be a pipe bomb like item, but without wires according to GPD. The Los Angeles Sheriff Bomb Squad was called to ensure the safety of the neighborhood.

The bomb squad sent over a robot to inspect the device more closely. It could not be determined if the item was really a pipe bomb so they did two remote detonations to destroy the item.

It was determined after, to simply be a PVC pipe that had been filled with nuts and bolts, possibly for a plumber or contractor said Lt. Scott Strong of GPD.

The video below was taken by GCN as the second detonation occurred.
