Maryland State Fire Marshall Investigates Possible Pipe Bomb in Stevensville

Feb 17, 2012


     The Maryland State Fire Marshall is investigating a possible pipe bomb, found in Stevensville on Thursday.

     Officials with the Queen Anne’s County Office of the Sheriff say, shortly before 9 a.m., a worker with the Queen Anne’s County Roads Department, located the possible pipe bomb next a utility pole, while working in the area of Grollman Road at Old Love Point Road.

     The item is described as an 8 to 10 inch galvanized pipe with screw caps on each end.

     Traffic in the area was diverted for 3 hours until State Fire Marshall units were able to respond. A Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport bomb squad robot neutralized the pipe with two shots from the robot’s high pressure water cannon.
