City of Bend Police neutralized a potentially hazardous and explosive device today, found on NE Greenwood Ave and NE 12th Street. A citizen reported the suspicious looking six inch long galvanized pipe — similar to a pipe bomb — complete with a cap on both ends.

Officers cordoned off the area with sandbags as the Oregon State Police Explosive Unit was called in from Salem. As traffic was closed on both sides, the device was "rendered safe" according to OSP.
