Bomb Scare

DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) - The Duncan Police Department was temporarily evacuated after an apparent pipe bomb was brought into the building.

Police Chief Jeff Johnson says the building was evacuated about 4:30 p.m. Monday when a city employee tried to hand the device to an officer. It was reopened about 7 p.m. after an Oklahoma Highway Patrol bomb squad using a robot moved the pipe to a parking lot and
deactivated it.

Johnson says the incident began when the city employee found the 6-inch long PVC pipe in a ditch in the city and took it to police.

Johnson says police are now trying to determine who made the device and why it was left in the ditch.
