Explosive device removed from truck in Plymouth

An improvised explosive device was removed safely from a truck in a Plymouth apartment building’s parking lot Saturday, a spokeswoman for the state fire marshal’s office said.

The State Police bomb squad, which is assigned to the fire marshal’s office, was called to the scene at about 11:45 a.m. to assist local law enforcement officials, spokeswoman Jennifer Mieth said in a phone interview.


She said the bomb squad removed the device, which contained “a firework that could explode,” but did not detonate the device. A follow-up investigation will be conducted by the Plymouth Police Department, she said.

Plymouth police were not available for comment.
