Truck containing explosives found in Mid City Nola


quote:

The eight suspicious devices that New Orleans police discovered inside an abandoned pickup truck in a Mid-City bank parking lot contained chemicals that could have caused an explosion, according to an NOPD spokesman. The devices contained a combustible compound, according to officer Frank Robertson III.

The devices, which were discovered in the parking lot of Whitney Bank in the 3300 block of Canal Street. will be sent to the lab for further analysis. The federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives is now in charge of the investigation, Robertson said.

About 9:30 a.m., a mounted police officer working a detail was alerted to the suspicious Ford F-150 pickup that had been in the parking lot all weekend.

The officer, who has military experience, opened the truck's door, and found what appeared to be two incidiary devices sizzling and smoking inside, Robertson said.

Mechanical robots found three devices inside the truck. Later, the NOPD bomb squad found five more devices inside the truck, one of which contained a timer and a fuse.

UPDATE: Police found 8 devices in the vehicle About 9:30 a.m., a private duty police detail officer working at Whitney Bank noticed that a brown Ford F-150 had been parked in the bank parking lot since Friday, according to police.

He approached the truck to try to see if there was a driver present. When he opened the door, the devices in the car began to smoke and spark. The officer then shut the door and alerted authorities.

The premise was immediately evacuated, and a bomb team was on the scene within minutes, NOPD spokesman Frank Robertson said. The bomb technicians deployed a bomb robot, which retrieved three of the devices from the vehicle. The bomb technician then went to physically check the truck for more devices, and found five.

The devices were then placed in a bomb pod. The devices resembled wrapped candlesticks, Robertson said.

New Orleans Police have not released any information about possible suspects.

My mom works there. She basically said everything that the article said, except that Friday the guy was in the drive-through lane and his truck killed. Something about how he was behind on his payments and they shut off the chip on the key. She said him and someone else pushed it off to the side and left it there. Some guy this morning was walking next to it and noticed something weird about it and gave the cop inside a heads up.

Will be interesting to see what comes of this. Weird how the officer opened up the door and saw something sparking (assuming this has been reported correctly). I would think that something would have been burning in the car the whole weekend if it was burning at all...unless opening the door would trigger something.

That might be all there is to this or that could just be the story that they told them. Dunno.
