KCSO bomb squad destroys an old device in west Bakersfield
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
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.
