On Sunday, July 31, a man found an old pipe bomb while digging in his yard in Albion, New York, approximately 55 miles from Buffalo.
The man called the Albion Police, who in turn called the bomb office squad from nearby Monroe County. The squad examined the bomb, which police estimated had been buried for 15 years, due to its rusted condition.
The bomb squad moved the bomb to safer location, determined that it did contain an explosive substance, and destroyed all potentially harmful substances.
Pipe bombs are usually homemade and packed with low explosives that can generate a large explosion.
