PALM BAY, Fla. - Officers with the Palm Bay Police Department responded to a residence near Crocus St NE and Airview Ave NE after a person reportedly located an object identified as a pipe bomb.
Lieutenant Jeff Spears with the Palm Beach Police Department says the bomb had been there for a while.
"There's rust and some other identifiers that make it … it's been there for a while. So at this point now it's just trying to pick up the pieces and try to figure out if there's any surveillance in the area that could determine who put it there or how it came about being in that specific area in Palm Bay."
Minor evacuations were ordered in the immediate area. The Brevard County Sheriff’s Bomb Squad arrived to detonate the object.
