Bomb Squad Summoned In Hibbing After Devices Found
HIBBING (AP) - The Hibbing Police Department called out a bomb squad after a person turned in three plastic tubes filled with what appeared to be gunpowder that had fuses sticking out of them.
The person was helping a friend clean out a shed when they came across the tubes.
Authorities say an older relative apparently used them to blow up beaver dams.
The items were brought to the Hibbing Police Department around 11:30 p.m. Friday.
The Crow Wing County Bomb Squad disposed of them by 4:30 a.m. Saturday.
Hibbing Police say that anyone who comes across such items, or even if they merely suspect an item is dangerous, should leave it alone and call law enforcement immediately.
