FBI, ATF join bomb probe in Barnstead
“We have been contacted by the two agencies and we will be keeping them informed of our progress with the investigation,” Police Sgt. Joe McDowell said Wednesday.
The first was found at 7:16 a.m. Tuesday on Halfmoon Bay Road, McDowell said. A passerby reported the discovery to police. The second was found nearby at Dalton Road later in the day.
Each bomb was on the ground in many pieces, and they differed in construction, McDowell said of the devices.
The state police Explosive Disposal Unit was called.
The remains of the bombs are being examined further, McDowell said.
“There are YouTube videos that show how to make them,” McDowell said.
Police said residents should not be worried about the bombs, but they are asking people “to be aware, and report anything unusual to the police.”
