Bomb squad safely disables explosive in Harrison

— A bomb squad safely disabled a pipe bomb after evacuating Harrison's City Hall as a precaution.

Authorities say a woman found the device in her home Thursday and brought it to the police department, which is adjacent to City Hall. The Harrison Daily Times reports a bomb squad from Bentonville was called in to disable the device.

City Hall was evacuated as a precaution and employees were sent home for the day.

Bomb technician Michael Meadors says the bomb squad used a water cannon to blow apart the device. Meadors says the explosive was a PVC pipe filled with gunpowder and surrounded by pellets that would have created shrapnel if it had exploded.

Authorities say the woman said the device belonged to a previous resident of her home.
