Bomb Found in Kansas Field

Associated Press - June 26, 2017 7:51 am

Authorities in east-central Kansas’ Lyon County are investigating a small bomb they say was found in a field.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Department says that the improvised explosive device was found shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday near Allen by a person who was renting the field.

Sheriff’s officials contacted a Fort Riley bomb squad, which responded to the scene and disabled the device.

A message left with the sheriff’s department Monday was not immediately returned.
