Toledo police investigating 'Drano bomb'

Posted: Tuesday, Jun 3rd, 2014

TOLEDO Police in Toledo are still investigating an incident involving a homemade explosive device.

The Toledo police and fire departments responded to reports of a suspicious object in the 100 block of NE Douglas Street around 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 29.

They determined it to be a "Drano bomb," a "very unpredictable and dangerous homemade explosive device" that can take a finger off and cause chemical burns, Chief David Enyeart said.

Residents surrounding the area were notified to stay indoors for their safety as the Oregon State Police Bomb Squad was called out from Salem.

"Drano bombs blow up because of a chemical reaction from aluminum foil, water and Drano in a liter bottle," Enyeart said.
