UPDATE: Spokane County Bomb Squad Dispatched to Airway Heights

AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash. - At around 9pm Thursday evening the Spokane County Bomb Squad was dispatched to Airway Heights after a man found two suspicious looking PVC pipes under the porch of the trailer he was moving into. The pipes were described as about 4 inches in diameter and two to three feet long, and capped on both ends.

About five nearby homes were evacuated. The bomb squad detonated the devices as a precaution. They are testing the contents of those pipes to find out exactly what was inside them and whether there needs to be a criminal investigation.
