Suspicious device discovered at dump

By Kristen Tribe | Published Saturday, March 22, 2014

A suspected bomb found at a county dump site this week turned out to be a dud.

An item that resembled a homemade bomb was dropped off at Wise County’s Cottondale dump site just before 5 p.m. Thursday. Fire Marshal Chuck Beard said it was a “dummy,” made from an aluminum can with screws and wires attached to it but lacking components that would have made it explode.

The device was left at the dump by a woman who was dropping off trash and said the object had “been rolling around in the back of her pickup for a while.” Beard said after she tossed it in with her trash, the dump attendant removed it and put it to the side, calling 911.

The Sheriff’s Office, Cottondale Fire Department and medics were dispatched to the scene at 6465 FM 2123, about two miles west of the Cottondale store.

Beard said Sheriff’s Department officers discharged a shotgun to detonate the device before he arrived.
