Police remove several explosives from an alley in Clovis

Monday, October 21, 2013

The Clovis Police Department bomb squad removed several homemade explosives from an alley Monday afternoon.

The Clovis Police Department received a call from a homeowner at 4th Street and Oxford Ave. who said he saw a paper sack with what looked like a suspicious object inside. Officers closed off 4th Street between Cherry Lane and Oxford Ave.

A robot was used to put what appeared to be four homemade explosives into a bucket of water to help neutralize them. The bomb squad then took the explosives to an area outside the city to render them safe.
