A mailman emptying a mailbox in Dundalk yesterday found an unexploded pipe bomb inside, Baltimore County police said.
The bomb was discovered on the mailman's regular round about noon as he was emptying the box at Mornington and Sollers Point roads.
The county's bomb squad removed the device, which was encased in plastic plumber's tubing, and detonated it in an open field, police said. The remains of the bomb were turned over to the U.S. Postal Service, which will investigate the incident.
