Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a suspicious object located in a vacant lot in a residential area late Tuesday morning. At about 11:00 a.m. deputies responded to the 8000 block of S Carob Drive regarding a resident in the area reported spotting an artillery simulator.
The simulator appeared to have been tampered with recently as someone may have attempted to detonate it. The device was approximately 5 to 6 inches in length.
The Bullhead City Police Department’s Bomb Squad responded. The BHCPD Bomb Squad used their robot to relocate the device to a safe area, about 50 yards away, where the device was detonated.
The scene was cleared by 1:30 p.m.
