Park In Cumberland Reopens After Bomb Explosion Sunday

Last updated on Tuesday, May 19, 2009

(CUMBERLAND) - Lions Park in Cumberland has been reopened to the public after a pipe bomb exploded Sunday night in the park.

The area was searched by bomb-sniffing dogs.

The Cumberland Police Department says a second explosive device and bomb-making paraphernalia were also found and safely removed.

Investigators believe the first device may have exploded prematurely, possibly injuring its maker. They found a crater about a foot wide and an inch deep.

Anyone with information that could lead to an arrest is asked to call the Cumberland Police Department or Crimestoppers at 262-TIPS.
