Possible Bomb Found Near Fairgrounds

A suspicious briefcase found near the Kootenai County Fairgrounds this evening contained some kind of explosive device. The briefcase was reported at 5:50 p.m. by passersby who spotted it while they were heading to the North Idaho Fair a couple blocks away, said Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Christie Wood. The case had the words “Warning do not touch” and “Boom” written on it in black ink. It was left in a grassy area near the sidewalk on Second Street, south of Kathleen Avenue and behind the Great Floors store on Government Way. The Spokane County Bomb Squad safely detonated the device shortly after 10 p.m., Wood said. No one was injured and no property was damaged, she said/Carolyn Lamberson, SR. More here.
