BOMB SQUAD DETONATES SUSPICIOUS DEVICE IN EL CAJON

June 18, 2012 (El Cajon)--Today, several construction workers arrived at a work site in the

300 block of Linda Way, near Chambers Street in El Cajon, to a suspicious sight. Workers reported what appeared to be a homemade explosive device, according to El Cajon Police.

“It was a [road] flare with some wires and a container with fluid attached,” Battalion Chief Ted Kakuris with Heartland Fire told East County Magazine.

San Diego Sheriff’s Bomb and Arson Squad was called to the scene and used a water cannon to blow apart the device. 

Chief Kakuris said the device did not detonate. However, he concluded, “It was simply an attempt to make an explosive device and it was flawed.”
