Police: Pipe bomb discovery prompts evacuation of condos

Georgia News

ATLANTA (AP) — The discovery of what appeared to be a pipe bomb caused a condominium community in metro Atlanta to be evacuated for hours.

DeKalb County police said in a tweet early Tuesday morning that residents were able to return to their homes.

News outlets report a man seen throwing objects off his balcony Sunday was taken into custody.

Police later determined at least one of the objects he threw was a pipe bomb.

A search of the community turned up at least five pipe bombs.

A transit bus had been called in so residents had a place to sit until the search could be completed.
