Two bomb scares in Oakhurst

Thursday, December 02, 2010

Two bomb scares in Madera County led to a busy day for the bomb squad.

Sheriff's deputies investigating a meth lab Wednesday found what appeared to be a pipe bomb inside a home in Oakhurst. The device was removed and destroyed.

Around the same time, someone dropped off a box full of blasting caps outside an antique store on Highway 41 near Road 426 in Oakhurst.

A video of the scene sent in by an Action News viewer. Workers at the store called the bomb squad who took the caps away and blew them up.

No one was hurt. Investigators are looking into who dropped off the explosives.
