Worker alerts police to possible explosives near 23rd and Indiana in KCMO

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The surrounding two blocks at 23rd and Indiana were closed on Friday afternoon while a bomb and arson squad investigated possible explosives.

A worker contacted police just after 3 p.m. saying they located those possible explosives. FOX 4's Robert Townsend reported that a Kansas City Water Department worker picked up what they described as two pipe bombs in a park.

A bomb squad member carefully put at least one of the pipe bombs in a concrete drum, and police extensively questioned the worker before clearing the scene. Nobody was hurt and no evacuations were ordered.
