Controlled Blast Brings Close to Roth's Bomb Squad Turnout

The blast shook homes and businesses in the surrounding area.

Roth's IGA store in Salem, Oregon

(SALEM) - "It shook the walls inside my apartment."

That is what one Salem resident reported to over the telephone just after 3:00 PM, after officers detonated a suspected explosive device at the Roth's IGA store on Lancaster Drive NE in Salem.

A state police bomb squad had taken up position at the Roth's IGA store on Lancaster Drive NE, assisting Marion County deputies over a report of a suspicious device that was located on the store property.

Salem Hospital was also the scene of a bomb squad turnout today, that device was safely detonated and there were no injuries.

Traffic along all of Lancaster Drive NE was impacted by the police turnout. We'll have more when on this as information is released.

Your minor point is a good one, our only stock photo was that store and I just didn't have the ability to get over there yesterday. No doubt that accuracy was compromised. Good comment, thanks for pointing it out.

It would be nice if you used the photo of the correct store on lancaster rather than the photo of the silverton store.
