    NLB Pipe Bomb Found -- Not Fake, The Real Thing -- Dangerous Device Defused by L.A. County Bomb Squad w/ LBFD & LBPD Assist

    (April 12, 2003) -- A dangerous pipe bomb was discovered in NLB today -- not a fake, the real thing -- bringing the L.A. County bomb squad (with space suit type protective gear) and triggering a precautionary evacuation as the device was skillfully neutralized.

    LBFD Public Information Officer Wayne Chaney tells that at roughly 8:00 a.m., a man driving in the area of 59th St. and Brayton Ave. noticed the pipe in the middle of the street, got out of his car and moved it over to the grass. LBFD was notified, identified it as possibly a bomb and notified LBPD and the L.A. County bomb squad.

    L.A. County bomb squad personnel examined the device...and indicated it was a real metal pipe bomb. The area was roped off and four homes in the area were evacuated as a precautionary measure

    The bomb squad rendered the device safe...and indicated could have extensively damaged the four evacuated homes.

    LBFD had a paramedic assessment company (paramedics on the fire engine) on scene which stood by in case anything went wrong. LBPD also responded and coordinated with the L.A. County bomb squad.
