Intact Pipe Bomb found in Lander

(Lander, Wyo.) - This is not what one would expect to find when doing some spring cleaning. A resident in the Lander area called the Sheriff's Office on Thursday to report finding a pipe bomb. A report said the caller "thought it was unsafe and wanted it removed." It was the real deal. The call came in at 9:17 a.m. from an undisclosed location (that information was redacted from the Sheriff's report) and deputies saw that the pipe bomb was, in fact, real, and they also noted it was not "placed" or "set to explode." The FCSO contacted the local Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Special Agent to deal with the explosive device. The ATF is handling the investigation as to how the pipe bomb came to be where it was found. No further information was available. A request for information was left at the Lander Satellite Office of the ATF. #county10 #news
