Salem Police Locate Third Suspected BombSalem-News.com
(SALEM ) - Salem area bomb teams have responded to a third report of a suspicious explosive device today. Police Lt. Debbie Baker says the device was located by a passing motorist at Woodside Drive and Jon Mart in South Salem.
Baker says their police bomb team disrupted this one, which is a term used when officers try to breech the bomb. "Sometimes they explode, sometimes it goes better."
She says law enforcement in Salem is very concerned. This is the third suspected bomb found in Salem today, and so far none of them appear to be fake.
Referring to the latest explosive device, Baker confirmed that it appeared to be real, "It had all the makings of it."
While nobody wants to be overly alarmed, Baker stresses that people do need to operate with an extremely high level of caution. "If anybody sees anything that looks suspicious they need to back away from it, warn other people to do the same and call us."
She says this is the third confirmed bomb located in Salem today. While the devices that were located are sent to laboratories for analysis, they should be viewed as real explosive devices.
