Michigan: Reward Offered For Information Regarding Pipe Bomb Explosions

By Susan Duclos     Sep 22, 2008 in Crime
Hamburg Township Police Department in conjunction with Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Detroit Field Division, have announced a reward offer for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for pipe bomb explosions.
PRNewire (subscription required) has sent out a news release announcing the offer of $2,500 to those that can shed light and provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons' responsible for detonating explosive devices in Hamburg Township, Michigan.
Five detonations occurred from three incidents between August 29, and September 18, 2008, in the Hamburg Hills and Coventry Woods modular home parks.
Specialized units from Livingston County Sherriff's Department (explosive trained K-9) and the Michigan State Police Bomb Squad have also assisted at the crime scenes.
"Our first and foremost concern is public safety. Illegally manufactured pipe bombs have no place in our communities," said Brandon. "ATF and our law enforcement partners are committed to making our communities safe. We are working to identify those responsible before someone gets hurt or more property is damaged."
Chief Luciano stated, "These are dangerous bombs and we are going to utilize all of the law enforcement resources available to solve these crimes. I'm hoping that someone in the community saw something or has information that will help us."

Livingston Daily.com has Hamburg Township Police Chief Steve Luciano on record as stating these pipe bombs were homemade and intentionally being set off and last Friday he continued on to say "It's no joke; these are serious devices that had significant explosions. If anyone was near or around these, they would be seriously injured or killed."
Police do not believe the specific residents in the homes damaged are being targeted and Luciano says "There is no connection to the different locations except they are in close proximity."
Anyone with information about the explosions should immediately call 1-888-ATF-BOMBS or the Hamburg Township Police Department at 810-231-9391.
