Evansville Police Department Labels Device Found at Gas Station a “Hoax”
Early this morning, Himal Food Mart employees found a suspicious bag outside of the door of the gas station on Kratzville Rd. and immediately called Evansville Police. After EPD detonated the bag using a water cannon, the bomb squad robot checked the contents. EPD said the contents of the bag resembled a pipe bomb but it was determined to be a "hoax" pipe bomb.
Currently, we are not aware of any suspects but will keep you informed.
