Another Suspected Pipe Bomb Turns Up in E. Texas

Authorities say another suspected pipe bomb has been reported in East Texas, four days after the discovery of a similar device that turned out to be fake.

U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives spokesman Tom Crowley said investigators are working to determine whether the device found Monday outside a Tyler business was an actual bomb.

Crowley said a reported pipe bomb found last week in Troup was fake.

There have been at least a dozen reports of incendiary devices found in East Texas in recent weeks. Most were bottles containing flammable liquid and a wick, and most were at postal facilities.

Tyler is about 90 miles east of Dallas.
