Device Resembling Pipe Bomb Found

By  | 

Police say a Rockford man was mowing his lawn on the 400 block of Carbaugh when he kicked what looked like a pipe bomb.

The man called police and the bomb squad was sent to the scene. They detonated the device and found that there was no gunpowder in it, but police say there could have been at one time.

They're now investigating the incident.
