Police are investigating the discovery Tuesday of two handmade bombs found by a maintenance worker at an unidentified apartment complex, a police spokesman said.
The worker found the bombs while performing maintenance at the apartment complex.
When he left the apartment building, the maintenance worker took the bombs back to his workplace on Drusilla Lane then called police, Cpl. Tommy Stubbs said.
Authorities transported the bombs to a police shooting range on Airline Highway and detonated them, Stubbs said.
Investigators are not sure why the worker chose to drive the bombs to his workplace instead of calling authorities immediately, Stubbs said.
While Stubbs said he could not identify the apartment complex where the bombs were found, he did say the complex is not on Drusilla Lane.
Stubbs also said he could not reveal where in the complex the bombs were discovered or why they looked suspicious.
Police have no suspects or motives, he said.
Anyone with any information on this incident is urged to contact police’s Bomb Disposal Unit at (225) 389-3850 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
