Simulated Explosive Device Found

Release #: 1

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

**Simulated Explosive Device Found**

Tuesday, July 30th at approximately 5:45 p.m., the Kingman Police Department and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Unit responded to the Mohave County Superior Court building, 401 Spring St., regarding a suspicious device that was found by a court employee located outside the courthouse near the  front of the building.

Officers and the EOD team arrived on scene and located a suspicious pipe-shaped device that had a wire protruding from it. Bullhead City Police Department EOD Personnel responded to assist KPD EOD personnel.  EOD personnel utilized specialized equipment to disrupt the device at approximately 8:20 p.m. and render it safe.  EOD personnel determined that the device was a simulated explosive device.

The device was found after regular courthouse business and court security had evacuated the building.  No one was injured during the incident. Roadways surrounding the courthouse (parts of Spring St. Fourth St., and Pine St.) were closed off for approximately 4.5 hours.

This is the second suspicious device found at the courthouse this week.  The investigation remains on-going as investigators are checking into whether the two incidents are connected. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Kingman Police Department by calling (928) 753-2191, or report anonymously to Mohave Silent Witness by calling (928) 753-1234, or report tips online by going to www.kingmanpolice.com and clicking on “Give a Tip”.

If anyone sees a suspicious device, do not touch it or do anything with it.  Please leave the immediate vicinity and notify authorities as soon as possible.
