AUBURN, Ind. (AP) — State and federal authorities have joined local police investigating a possible bomb explosion that damaged a pickup truck outside a northeastern Indiana garage.
Auburn Police Detective Phil Snover tells The Star the Tuesday morning blast is “being investigated as an explosive device” that appeared to have originated inside the truck.
The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Indiana State Police are investigating with police in Auburn, located about 20 miles north of Fort Wayne.
No one was injured in the blast. The pickup was parked in front of a makeshift garage/repair shop, and its owner was working inside at the time.
The force of the explosion bent the roof of the pickup and blew the front windshield across the street and into a neighboring yard.
