Syndicated by: Montana News
11/24/18  An Officer received a report that there was a bomb on the side of the road in the area of Sanders St and Cole Ave.  The complainant, who was a passer-by indicated the device was a drain cleaner bomb.

The suspicious device was lying in the gutter on the roadway.  There were no cars or people around the device.  Officers arrived on scene and observed a plastic bottle with liquid in it.

The bottle appeared to be somewhat pressurized.  For precautionary measures, HPD called out the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) team.

The Sheriff’s Office EOD team arrived on scene and was able to depressurize the device.  Helena Fire assisted with the proper disposal of the device as well as clean up.

Again, there was nobody around the device or any vehicles parked in the area where the device was found.  It is unknown at this time how this device ended up where it did.

 Additionally, it is unknown if this device was made to be an explosive device.

 The Helena Police Dept wanted to err on the side of caution by using the Sheriff’s Office EOD team so there were no injuries to anybody or property damage sustained by a potential blast from the device.

This case is still under investigation according to the Helena Police Department.
