LA MESA (CNS) - Police were on the lookout Wednesday for someone who threw a bottle bomb at a trolley at a La Mesa station.
Surveillance video showed the 16-ounce plastic bottle, which appeared to have been filled with unknown chemicals that caused it to fill with gasses and explode, was hurled just before 8 p.m. Tuesday from a vacant lot west of the Spring Street Trolley Station at 4250 Spring Street, police said.
The bottle struck a trolley, fell to the ground and exploded a few minutes later, police said. No one was injured and the trolley was not damaged, police said.
