ST. CLOUD – St. Cloud police have released more information about the explosive device that was found on Saturday.

Sergeant Jason Burke says the item was consistent with a “cricket” bomb, or an explosive device made from an empty CO2 cartridge.  The device did not contain any shrapnel, and had a non-timer type fuse.

On Saturday officers blocked off an area near 29th Avenue after someone found the suspicious item.  Homes in that area were also evacuated.  The Crow Wing Bomb Squad was called in and detonated the device.

There have been no arrests in the case.

Anyone with any information should contact the St. Cloud Police Department, or Tri-County CrimeStoppers at 255-1301.  You can also text a tip to CrimeStoppers by entering 274637, and then start your text with TRITIP, enter a space, and then the tip information.
