River Edge NJ, an undetonated pipe bomb was found next to a NJ Transit bus stop located at the intersection of Howland Avenue and Kinderkamack Road, River Edge, on Thursday afternoon, 07/29. The device was successfully removed from the scene by the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad. Bomb Squad technicians deployed a remote controlled robot and a trailer mounted containment chamber to safely manage the vessel. At least one (1) building in a nearby garden apartment complex was evacuated in connection with the incident. An elderly male evacuee was assessed by Emergency Medical Technicians at the scene after he complained of fatigue and exhaustion. He refused ambulance transportation to a local hospital.

Unconfirmed reports indicate the device was found by a maintenance worker at the apartment complex, who moved it from its original location to a parking lot within the complex. Police were called after the worker’s supervisor became suspicious of the item. In addition to Bergen County Sheriff’s Office personnel, River Edge Police and NJ Transit Police (K-9, ESU, and North Patrol) officers were also on site. River Edge Fire Department and River Edge EMS were on standby at the scene. Needless to say, an investigation is underway to determine the device’s origin.
