Science project mistaken for explosive
A discarded school project was mistaken for a small explosive device and forced the evacuation of some residents in North Portland Sunday afternoon.
Police were alerted to the package in the field of a North Trenton Street-North Haven Avenue neighborhood around 3:15 p.m. on March 9. The bomb squad was called but determined the item was a school project.
Residents returned to their homes. No one was hurt.Add a comment
