Suspicious device prompts evacuations in Colorado tow


#1

NEDERLAND, Colo. (AP) — Authorities are studying pieces of an explosive device that was left in a backpack in front of the Nederland Police Department.

Police marshal Paul Carrill says a detective found a backpack outside the building when he began his shift Tuesday morning. He brought the bag inside and found what appeared to be an improvised explosive device.

Two robots searched the backpack, and multiple pieces were removed from the device. The pieces were sent to the forensics lab in Boulder.

Carrill would not say whether police know the backpack’s owner. Investigators have not determined a motive.

If I had to guess, it’s got to be a personal axe to grind. Nederland isn’t a hotspot. Unless it’s just for experimentation.
