 EXPLOSIVE DEVICE FOUND IN NEWBERG

explosive device newberg RESIZEOn Monday, March 02, at about 1:00 p.m., Newberg Public Works employees called in a suspicious device located in a vacant lot adjacent to the North Valley Friends Church located in the 4000 block of N. College Street in rural Newberg.

The device was near a fire hydrant and estimated to be approximately 75 yards north of the Church building near the North Valley Friends Public Trail.

Officers from the Newberg-Dundee Police Department responded and secured the area and were joined by Yamhill County Sheriff's Deputies a short time later. Traffic was blocked off at entry and egress of the parking lot. No highway traffic was affected and the Church was not evacuated. The Oregon State Police Explosives Unit was notified and responded.

The device, constructed with what appeared to be a capped metal pipe with a fuse attached, was located at the base of a fire hydrant. It was rendered safe and the components were collected to be examined later by the Explosives Unit. It appears at this time the device was viable, but based on the condition of the device, may have been at the location for an extended period of time. Further examination will be conducted by the Oregon State Police.

Manufacture of an Explosive Device, ORS 166.384, is a class C felony. At this time there is no suspect information available and the investigation is continuing.

Anyone with information on this investigation is encouraged to contact Deputy Russell Meade of the Sheriff's Office at 503-434-7506.
