Oregon Self-Storage Facility Calls Bomb Squad to Remove Suspicious Object


The Eugene, Ore., bomb squad removed a suspicious object from Down Town Mini Storage after an auction buyer found the object among an abandoned unit's contents. The buyer left the object at the front counter.

Facility staff immediately called police, who cordoned off the area until the bomb squad could arrive. The Metro Explosives Disposal Unit responded to the facility, which is in an industrial part of Eugene near Chambers Boulevard. The squad loaded the device into a special chamber for transport.

At the time of the source's report, police did not know whether the object is dangerous. If determined to be explosive, the bomb squad will destroy it.
