KCSO bomb squad destroys an old device in west Bakersfield

The Kern County Sheriff's Office bomb squad responded Thursday night to the 15000 block of Azalea Spring Court in west Bakersfield to dispose of a device found by a resident in their backyard.

The sheriff's office watch commander said the device was very old and used to prime dynamite.

The device did carry a charge, and as a safety measure, the bomb squad detonated it in a nearby field.
