Police: IED Found Near Chester Train Tracks

CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) — Chester police are urging vigilance after they found an improvised explosive device, this afternoon, near Amtrak and Septa railroad tracks and the Commodore Barry Bridge. 



Police say the device consisted of two bottles with a yellow liquid inside. They say one had a timer and wires attached by duct tape. 



Police were not sure if the device was really explosive but evacuated the area as a precaution. The Delaware County bomb squad determined that it was and disarmed it.



The device was found about 2 p.m., near third and Reaney Streets. That’s underneath the bridge and not far from the tracks Septa’s Wilmington-Newark line uses.



An investigation is underway.

    Likely another false flag event.
    The ‘terror’ message gets out and they don’t actually have to blow anything up.
    The message gets to the people that ‘the bad men'(tm) are everywhere and they are trying to kill you.
    We need more ‘security’ more surveillance etc.

    Another gift from the religion of peace?

    OBL did say he wanted to attack trains.

    So, what was the yellow liquid?

    “Police were not sure if the device was really explosive but evacuated the area as a precaution. The Delaware County bomb squad determined that it was and disarmed it.

”

    Trained bomb squad experts determined it was explosive, but some anonymous commenters decided it wasn’t. Who to believe?

    If you read the article it says that the bomb squad determined that the device was explosive. The only thing that is blurred is your vision. Read before you write.

  6. Tony says:

    So, they didn’t find an IED, they found a device that could be an IED or an ill-advised hoax. Very poor poor reporting here by blurring together facts and speculation.
