Bomb squad detonates device in Eudora

September 13, 2012, 11:49 p.m. Updated September 15, 2012, 1:12 a.m.


Eudora police have few new details to release about a “suspicious device” found and later detonated Thursday afternoon at the Greenway Apartment complex, 1516 Greenway Drive, said Sgt. Chris Casagrande.

“Right now, we’re just in a holding pattern,” he said.

Casagrande did not release any more specific information about the device, which was taken from the apartment manager’s office Thursday about 1 p.m. The Leavenworth County bomb squad detonated it about 4:30 p.m.

Casagrande said the remaining materials will be tested, and officers are working a couple of leads. But he said it could take a week before new details emerge publicly.

It would be nice to know what to look for, for our protection.

Watch out for the explosion and you will be fine.

"Willis said he didn’t know if the device was in itself explosive, or whether the bomb squad used its own materials to detonate it."

i.e., they don't even know if this really was an explosive device.

I find it really hard to believe that they have no idea what type of device it is. If the bomb squad was there doing their job obviously so was the cop for Eudora. And I am sure they would have communicated that information with each other. This type of information is important for the public to know. How else does the average joe know what a odd device looks like without informing the public. I say bad PR skills right here.

I wouldn't be too certain of inter-departmental communication.
