New leads sought in pipe bomb case

Truckee police continue to look for leads in the investigation on the explosive device discovered July 22 at a Donner Lake fire station.

Materials from the pipe bomb found at the Truckee Fire Protection District Station 93 were sent to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in San Francisco and the Department of Justice in Sacramento.

The Truckee Police Department has received information on the device itself from the ATF, but have not received fingerprint evidence from the Department of Justice yet, said Truckee Police Lt. Randy Fenn.

Evidence from the ATF including chemical composition has not created new leads, but is being withheld until police have a suspect, Fenn said.

The investigation will need either fingerprint evidence from the DOJ or someone with information on the pipe bomb to contact police, Fenn said.

“We’ve interviewed some people, but we have exhausted all our leads,” Fenn said.

Anyone with any information on the pipe bomb is asked call Truckee Police Detective Robert Womack at 550-2335.
