CARLSBAD (CNS) - A bomb squad safely disposed of gray, clay-like material with wires sticking out of it found Wednesday in front of a Carlsbad public library.
Maintenance workers found the oblong object shortly before 8:30 a.m. near a concrete trash can outside the front doors of Cole Library, which was not open at the time, according to police.
Responding officers called in a county bomb squad, Lt. Kelly Cain said.
The explosives team used a camera-equipped robot to inspect the object before deciding to destroy it. The controlled detonation occurred about 11 a.m., and the Carlsbad Village Drive library was cleared to open roughly an hour later, Cain said.
It remained unclear this afternoon what the object was. Authorities received no threats related to the object, the lieutenant said.
