Bomb squad called to help with removal of suspicious device in Sandy

SANDY, Ore. -- Police are investigating a report of a suspicious device inside a house on Woodbury Street in Sandy on Sunday afternoon.

Police say a man found what appeared to be a pipe bomb in a quarry and brought it back to their garage before calling police.

The street's residents were advised to evacuate their homes if possible and at least stay indoors and away from windows.

Woodbury Street was closed while officers investigated the device. Sandy police contacted the Metro Bomb squad to help remove the device safely.

It was safely detonated in a remote location and determined to be most likely an altered illegal firework.
