Tyco Factory in Dallas Evacuated Over Fourth BombSalem-News.com
Four bombs were discovered in the Mid-Willamette Valley Thursday, the latest being found in the Tyco factory parking lot in Dallas.
(DALLAS) - All employees of the Dallas Tyco factory have been evacuated over the reported finding of a suspected explosive device.
Dallas Police Chief James Harper told Salem-News.com that the device was found very close to a parked car by an employee in the Tyco parking lot around 7:45 PM.
"It is an unusual day in Dallas like it is in the rest of the world." Harper says Oregon State Police sent a bomb team out to the Tyco factory. Officers evacuated the employees and established a perimeter, "Their bomb team rendered the device safe. Now we are continuing the investigation and evaluating the scene."
This is the fourth reported incident involving the discovery of an explosive device in the Mid-Willamette Valley Thursday. Police bomb squads from Salem and the state police responded to three separate locations in Salem throughout the day.
An OSP bomb team working with county deputies detonated one bomb at the Roth's IGA store on Lancaster Drive NE, while Salem bomb team members diffused one at Salem Hospital, and disrupted the second bomb in a South Salem neighborhood on Woodland Drive.
Chief Harper ecnoes comments made by other law enforcement officials on a day when the mid-valley suddenly became much more dangerous, "Anybody who sees anything that appears unusual should clear the area and call Oregon State Police or their local law enforcement agency."
