SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Four pipe bombs were discovered this week near the Salt Lake City landfill.

Authorities say an employee of the Salt Lake County Water Reclamation Department was driving near 1300 South and 7200 West when he spotted the objects in the road.

Salt Lake City police detective Robin Snyder says bomb technicians were called. He says a water cannon was used to disrupt the devices.

Investigators says they appeared to be working pipe bombs and NOT fakes.

Snyder says they do NOT have any potential suspect information and they are NOT sure if the pipe bombs were simply discarded, dropped or if they were intended for a specific target.
