Power outage leads workers to bomb

Utility workers investigating a power outage on Gary’s east side found an unexploded homemade bomb in a NIPSCO substation, police said. Police Chief Garnett Watson said it is unclear how long the device, which consisted of two aerosol cans taped together, fuel and charred paper, had been in the substation. FBI Supervisory Senior Agent Chuck Porucznik said that after the device was found about 7:30 a.m. Thursday, officials tried unsuccessfully to detonate it. Fencing behind the substation building had been cut to allow someone entry to the property, but the damage did not appear recent, Porucznik said. The last time NIPSCO workers visited the substation was early November, he said. Porucznik said investigators do not believe there is any connection between the power outage and the bomb. Full Story
