By Kerry Evans-Spillman, Land Line staff | Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Monday evening, an employee at Magerus Trucking in Oklahoma City saw something attached to the fuel tank of a rock hauler. After removing it, the employee realized it was an explosive device and called 911.

Sgt. Gary Knight, assistant public information officer for the Oklahoma City Police Department, told Land Line Magazine that the Oklahoma City Bomb Squad responded to the scene where they confirmed the device was a PVC pipe bomb.

While investigating the scene, the bomb squad found another explosive device under the cab of the same truck.

Both devices were destroyed at the scene by the bomb squad. No one was injured.

Sgt. Knight said there are no suspects at this time.

A representative for Magerus Trucking declined to comment because of the ongoing investigation.
