Bomb Squad Explodes Bombs in Chester County
A series of explosions shook houses Thursday night as authorities destroyed pipe bombs in East Whiteland's Valley Creek Park.
Two bomb-disposal units were among the multiple emergency response teams working at the Public Storage facility in Frazer Thursday evening after a large amount of explosives was found inside a storage locker.
FBI agents and bomb technicians worked in and around the building, located on the unit block of Lancaster Avenue, as local police and fire departments controlled traffic, maintained a perimeter and kept ready to respond to any incidents.
Around 8:30 p.m., bomb squads from Montgomery County and Philadelphia began hauling the explosives from the storage facility to nearby Valley Creek Park.
Dave Harman, who lives with his family in a house on the park grounds, said FBI agents told him they had discovered a storage unit full of pipe bombs and planned to detonate them in the park.
