Pipe Bomb Detonated

Detectives serving a warrant in Paradise Park ran into something unexpected and dangerous this afternoon. A pipe bomb.

Officers spotted it in a back bedroom of Larry Davis' house on  Dyches Drive. They called the Department of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and haz-mat to the scene. They blocked off the street while bomb experts went in, took the pipe bomb out into the backyard and detonated it.

Officers were originally there to arrest Davis for receiving a stolen car. Now he faces charges from ATF as well.
