Bomb squad responds to device found on Plymouth car

Posted: Updated:
PLYMOUTH, Mass. (WHDH) - The State Police bomb squad is investigating a suspicious device that was found attached to the gas tank of a car.

Officials responded to an apartment complex on Chapel Hill Drive in Plymouth where a woman said she found the device attached to the gas tank of her pickup truck.

The State Fire Marshall's office said the device was "an improvised device with a firework that could explode."

"It was two wires hanging out of the gas tank with a fire cracker attached to it." said Dawn Marie Forster, who lives near the scene.

The bomb squad was able to remove the device without detonating it.

Witnesses said they saw blue wires hanging from the tank and smelled gasoline. Forster said she also smelled gasoline.

"I only smelled it because I came near it to see what the heck was hanging out of the truck," Forster said.

Plymouth police are currently investigating. So far, there is no suspect and no motive.
