— Authorities say the Hot Springs Police Department was evacuated for about two hours after a resident took in a suspected pipe bomb.

Cpl. McCrary Means said a man took the device into the police station on Malvern Avenue shortly before 9:30 a.m. Monday. Means told the Sentinel-Record that all police employees were evacuated while the device was left in the parking lot out front.

Police say the man found the device near the Historic Downtown Farmers and Artists Market.

Authorities say the device was a 12- to 14-inch piece of copper pipe sealed at both ends with what appeared to be wires attached.

Police say a bomb squad disarmed the device later Monday morning. The device was sent to the State Crime Laboratory in Little Rock for analysis.
