St. Joseph Police Recover Small Pipe Bomb

St. Joseph Police reportedly found and recovered a small pipe bomb on the 500 block of Shady Avenue Wednesday.

Officers found the device and determined that it did not pose a threat to the public, but called the Kansas City Police Department’s Bomb and Arson squad to make sure.

According to St. Joseph police Sergeant Brett Kelley, the bomb appeared to lack an ignition source, meaning that it was ‘probably’ safe as long as it wasn’t ignited.

As of Wednesday night, no one suffered injury. While the investigation is ongoing, no arrests have been announced either.
