ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Police in southern Utah say the discovery of a pipe bomb on a city street appears to have been an isolated incident, and there's no indication anyone in particular was a target.
St. George police spokesman Johnny Heppler says a bomb squad removed the device after a person at a business reported seeing it in the roadway Monday morning near 600 North and Red Rock Road.
Heppler says the device was taken to a remote area where it was destroyed.
There were no injuries or property damage.
Heppler tells The Spectrum of St. George the device was made of plastic piping and had a fuse. It was almost a foot long.
