KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick Police had to call in the Richland Bomb Squad overnight after finding a pipe bomb at a house. Police say a homeowner in the 800 Block of South Juniper Street was going through a box from a family member who had recently passed away when he found narcotics. When Kennewick Police arrived they found a pipe bomb mixed in with the narcotics and other equipment in the box. The Richland Bomb Squad took the pipe bomb to a vacant field near the home and detonated it just after midnight, sending a loud boom through the neighborhood. Kennewick Police say if you ever find an item that is suspicious, do not touch or handle it, but call police immediately.
