Bombs in 023?
- I just got off of the phone with a 023rd district police officer, who informed me of the following:
Three devices were found in the alley behind the McDonald's Restaurant at Wilson Avenue & Sheridan Road.
One was a dud or intentionally not working. The other two were live and filled with about a gallon of acid, which when the bomb squad detonated them from a safe distance, blew in every direction.
The theory now is that the first one was to lull first responders into a false sense of security so they'd be lackadaisical and careless in defusing the other two.
