GREENFIELD – The Indiana State Police bomb squad was called to downtown Greenfield Friday morning after a suspicious pipe was discovered lying in a parking lot.
Greenfield police were notified by a resident going to work of a suspicious looking small pipe with a silver cap at each end lying in the parking lot at the south side of the intersection of SR 9 and W. North Street, said Greenfield Police Chief John Jester.
State police bomb squad members detonated the pipe and found it did not contain any explosive material.
The pipe was taken into evidence; however, there are no leads or further developments in the matter, Jester said.
“There’s been a lot of work in that area, and it could have been a piece of pipe that fell off a truck,” Jester said. “But we have to do our due diligence.”
Greenfield police arrived on the scene at approximately 7:10 this morning, and the scene was cleared by 9:30, Jester said.
The area, including the intersection of SR 9 and Main Street was closed for about 10 minutes while police investigated, he said.
